Samsung announces LTE Galaxy Tab 8.9, LTE Galaxy S II

Summary:Samsung is showing its commitment to LTE with an LTE-enabled Galaxy S II and Galaxy Tab.

Is Samsung serious about LTE? It sure seems so, judging by its announcement of the LTE-ready Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Galaxy Tab S II LTE. The pair were announced ahead of their official reveal at IFA this week, and bring with them a handful of changes from their non-LTE counterparts. In particular, both devices are getting the bump up to 1.5 GHZ chips. The upgraded Galaxy S II is also geting the improved 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display.

There is no word on price or availability, but there's speculation that Verizon will get the LTE-enabled Galaxy S II rather than the regular S II that the other three major carriers are getting. Considering that Verizon passed on the non-LTE version, the move would certainly make sense.
