Update: Verizon Support has tweeted again (and again and again), saying it mistweeted and it's the Galaxy Tab 10.1 that has LTE, and it has no info on the Galaxy S II. Move along, folks.
Original story: Great news just keeps coming for the Samsung Galaxy S II as Verizon reveals that their model will support their 4G LTE network. Five million have been sold worldwide thus far without hitting the US market. Many US consumers are considering one, but the question of LTE support has remained unanswered until now. Today's announcement will give Verizon customers food for thought, as the Galaxy S II and LTE-toting Droid Bionic are both due for release around the same time.
Here's the Tweet from @VZWSupport:
Great news! The Samsung Galaxy SII will have 4G. ^LM
So now that it will be running on Verizon's blazing fast 4G LTE, who is going to get one? And perhaps more importantly, what kind of toll can we expect LTE, SuperAMOLED+ and a dual-core CPU to take on the device's battery?
