Over two months since its release, the Samsung Galaxy Tab's 1GHz "Hummingbird" processor has been overclocked to 1.2GHz, courtesy of "Bauxite Kernel."  Currently only Sprint Tab owners can get in on the overclock love.

The developer, Bauxite, labels this as an early alpha build, and promises more to come with different frequencies and voltages.

The custom kernel comes in the form of a compressed zImage, and is installed with every Samsung fan's favorite: the Heimdall flashing tool.  Grab the zipped file here, and sound off in our Galaxy Tab forums. [xda-developers]

Pays to be with Sprint! :P

Actually, I dont think I can ever bring myself to pay for my phone AND pay for a separate plan to have a bigger version of a phone.

Maybe if they implemented combo plans?

Does this require the Tab to be rooted? If so, how do I go about doing it?
