When we ran across this new Metro UI theme for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 Android tablet, we couldn’t decide if Android users would be excited or outraged. I suspect there’ll be a bit of both. If you’re one of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 users who happens to appreciate the style of Microsoft’s Metro UI theme, you can now install the theme to your Android tablet.
The mod comes to you courtesy of a geek over on XDA Developers going by BroBot175. The mod gives you the look and feel of Windows 8 on the Galaxy Tab 10.1. The theme is flashable to your device using ClockworkMod recovery. It’s worth noting that the theme is in beta, but there is a website with instructions for installing the mod. Apparently, the mod will also work on the Asus Transformer tablet as well.
The beta release supports tablets running Android 4.0 and there are widgets under development just for the mod. If you don’t own either of the two tablets specified for support right now, another theme is coming that will support more tablets. If you are a hard-core Android user, let us know what you think about this mod.
