LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 wasn't the only thing AT&T unveiled today: they've also got a pretty sweet deal going for anyone in the market for both a tablet and a new phone. Buy a Galaxy Tab 8.9 and activate a new AT&T LTE data plan, and you can choose from a Samsung Galaxy S II or its LTE cousin the Skyrocket to take home as well. We though this was such an interesting deal that it was worth an extra post.

HTC Vivid and the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket. Sure, you could read our extensive reviews on the Vivid or Skyrocket, but you're busy. We've tallied up the pros and cons of each one in one handy-dandy article.
AT&T LTE bandwagon, but prefer your phone to have some Samsung wizardry instead of HTC sensibility? Then take a look at the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket. This offshoot of the Galaxy S II is one of only two AT&T phones to take advantage of the new speeds, along with its launch partner the HTC Vivid. How does it stack up to the competition?
dropped by a cool $100. That makes the Vivid just $99.99 and the Skyrocket $149.99 - not bad for a pair of phones with specs that are just shy of the top of the line.
an excellent review of the Motorola ATRIX 2 by Michael Crider. An unboxing of the HTC Rezound was then performed by Cory Gunther soon after. After seeing ads of the HTC Rezound show up in Verizon Wireless stores, you can be sure to see this device soon. It was officially announced to the public Thursday, and around the same time we released our own hands-on round-up.
Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket and the new HTC Vivid are AT&T's first 4G LTE smartphones, not to be confused with HSPA+ "4G" devices they've launched in the past. AT&T's 4G LTE just went live back in September and so far they only have 5 markets currently with 4G LTE although 4 more are coming this weekend. We decided to give their relatively small 4G LTE footprint a run for its money and see how she performed. Details and speedtest results are available after the break.
first two LTE smartphones both run Android Gingerbread, but they've got the unfortunate luck of being released just a few weeks before Ice Cream Sandwich lands on the Galaxy Nexus. AT&T has confirmed that both the HTC Vivid and the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket will be updated to Android 4.0 eventually. No specifics were mentioned, but a nebulous "early 2012" should see the rollouts begin.
AT&T 4G LTE smartphone in a row! The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket is, as the name implies, a 4G LTE version of AT&T's Galaxy S II variant. A hands-on look at the phone - and how it compares with the other launch device, the HTC Vivid - follows.
