Galaxy S II lte

Samsung has announced two new products ahead of their presumably big showing at IFA this week in Berlin, the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Tab 8.9 -- in LTE flavors.  They tell us a few limited specs, 1.5GHz CPU for both, and a size bump to a 4.5 inch screen in the Galaxy S II.  The rest looks to be unchanged, so we can't assume that the mythical 720p Super AMOLED screen (the one that haunts my dreams) will show up in the new Galaxy S II.  Interestingly, the Galaxy Tab 8.9 product pages have went live at Samsung's website as well, so we're pretty sure the Wifi version will also rear its head at IFA. 

We've heard all sorts of rumors and speculation about exactly what Samsung has in store for Verizon customers, and we've said all along to hold tight -- even after the Verizon version of the existing Galaxy S II seemed to have disappeared from the radar.  Will Verizon be picking up either or both of these two?  We can't say for sure, but it seems like a no-brainer.  We expect more details when these all get shown in Berlin, and until then we'll just have to sit tight.
