Samsung has officially announced LTE versions of the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Tab 8.9. The LTE version of the Galaxy S II will bring numerous upgrades from the existing HSPA+ Galaxy S II from Bell, including a larger screen, and faster processor. The Tab 8.9, which isn't available in Canada as of yet, also features a big improvement over its previously announced 3G version, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor.

Here's a full rundown of both device's specifications:

The Galaxy S II LTE features a 4.5" (480x800) Super AMOLED Plus display with Gorilla Glass, and is powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. It has an 8MP camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video capture, along with a secondary 2MP camera. It runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and will be a fantastic addition to any Canadian carrier.

The Galaxy tab 8.9 LTE features an 8.9" (800x1280) touchscreen display, and is powered by a 1.5GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. It runs on Honeycomb 3.0, and offers up a 3.15MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD capture, with a front-facing 2MP camera as well.

Both offer LTE connectivity, which has a maximum download speed of 150 Mbps. Rogers has already began a trial launch in Ottawa, and is expected to launch their LTE network in more areas by the end of the year. Bell and Telus also have their LTE network(s) marked as coming soon, though neither have been overly specific about timeframes. Hopefully we'll see both of these devices in Canada, though only time will tell.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is an impressive Android tablet, and having recently launched in the United States, Canadians were left wondering when we may see it available. Luckily, Samsung Canada quickly updated their site to include the Tab 10.1, marking it as "Coming Soon!"

Furthermore, information was recently leaked online stating that the Wi-Fi only version will be available sometime in July, while the 3G version will follow close behind, expected to launch sometime in August. Other great news regarding the 3G version - Rogers, Bell, and Telus will all be carrying the Honeycomb tablet!

To recap on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1's features and specs, it has a 10.1" (800x1280) touchscreen display, and is powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. It features a 8MP camera with LED flash, that is capable of recording full 720p HD video. it also has a 2MP front-facing camera, comes with TV-out functionality, and will offer 16GB of storage. The Tab 10.1 is only 8.6mm thick and weighs in under 600 g, making it super thin and light considering it's full 10" screen.

A variety of accessories will also be available at launch, including a keyboard dock, a bluetooth keyboard, and at least a few different cases. No word yet on pricing for the tablet itself, or the accessories that will launch along with it, but we'll be sure to keep you updated.

You can pick up the white Curve 3G for the low price of $250 outright, or $100 using the tab.
