Bell Mobility to Launch LTE Network with Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE and Galaxy S II LTE
You didn’t think Telus was going to be the only one with a next-gen LTE network, did you? While Telus plans to announce their LTE network on 28 September this year, Bell Mobility is also a quick follower, and is set to launch some LTE devices and its LTE network sometime this fall. Here’s what this means for Bell customers.
First, you won’t have to be tied down by slow 3G speeds anymore, and you’ll notice speeds on your smartphone or tablet that are a lot more like broadband, with Bell’s LTE supposedly reaching up to 150 Mbps. In reality it’s probably going to have the maximum around 50 Mbps or so, but that is also a very high speed, which should make websites load in an instant.
The bottleneck might actually be your smartphone’s CPU which needs to also render those pages. At slow 3G speeds the slow rendering wasn’t the bottleneck and was unnoticeable, but with LTE speeds, your smartphone’s processor will be the only thing keeping your web pages from loading as fast as possible, not the Internet connection.
But that is exactly why Bell Mobility’s LTE network is launching with the most powerful smartphone and tablet on the market: the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE, and the Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE. The Bell Mobility Galaxy S II LTE has a large 4.5″ Super AMOLED Plus display with a 800×480 resolution, comes with a dual core 1.2 Ghz processor, 1 GB of RAM, an 8 MP rear camera, and a 2 MP front camera. It runs Android 2.3.
The Bell Mobility Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE has an even more powerful dual core 1.5 Ghz processor, also 1 GB of RAM, 8.9″ display with 1280×800 resolution, 3MP rear camera with 720p video recording, and a 2 MP front-facing camera. It runs Android Honeycomb.
The 2 devices are both terrific and they are Samsung’s latest flagships, so they should make a great addition to Bell Mobility’s upcoming LTE network once arrive later this fall.
