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.

    Great! But Im with Hasam1991 in this one. Battery this days is almost so important than horsepower and this worries me. I hope they made it better too.

    To be honest I'm lost with all the <strong><a href="http://www.preciolandia.com/ar/computacion-ipad-y-tablets-1rc5/deno1.html">Ipads and Tablets</a></strong> available today, for instance here in Brasil, I tried to buy a Tablet (the <strong><a href="http://www.preciolandia.com/br/ipad-e-tablets-ipad-tq/deno1.html">Ipad (in Sao Paulo)</a></strong> but then someone suggested me the <strong><a href="http://www.preciolandia.com/br/ipad-e-tablets-coby-kyros-1zvh/deno1.html">Coby Kyros</a></strong>. And then to top it off someone offered me the <strong><a href="http://www.preciolandia.com/br/ipad-e-tablets-galaxy-tab-1ysw/deno1.html">Galaxy Tab</a></strong>.
    Which one should I choose?
