The CDMA version sees very less dev compared to the GSM versions. But, as always, when there is a will, there is a way. Spacemoose is almost done making his build of Honeycomb for the Galaxy Tab, and yes he is making it for the CDMA tabs as well. Actually, he's making it for CDMA and then porting it to GSM. You can get all the info here.
So if you want to just skip GB and go to HC, this page is what you should be looking at.
