The LTE-enabled version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 was announced in August. Since then, it’s made its way to AT&T in North America. Today the US carrier is joined by Bell in offering that particular device on that particular continent.
This is Bell’s first LTE capable tablet. The pricing is as follows: $429.95 with a new three-year contract, or $649.95 if you’d rather not do any contract signing. Interestingly, the two-year and one-year contract options are missing. Not that they’re usually very good deals in Canada anyway, but still – this isn’t something you see every day.
While download speeds over Bell’s LTE network could theoretically reach 75 Mbps, you’re more likely to see something between 12 and 30 Mbps in real world scenarios. That might not be even half of the theoretical speed, but on the other hand it’s a whole lot faster than any pre-LTE ’4G’.
So if you’re in Canada and would like to get a fast LTE tablet running Android Honeycomb, go to Bell right now and order yours.
