Verizon Indicates Their Galaxy S II Will be 4G LTE Ready [UPDATE]

The official twitter account for Verizon support has just made it known that their version of the Samsung Galaxy S II will be ready for the 4G LTE network.  This is the first time we’ve heard this information and we should note that this is not part of some formal press release.  Carriers and handset makers sometimes find themselves apologizing for errant tweets and Facebook posts so we’ll wait for further clarification.  Assuming the tweet stands and the Verizon Galaxy S II “Function” does offer support for 4G LTE, we’re seriously stoked.  The only thing that we fear here is another $249-$299 price tag.

UPDATE: This isn’t to say that Verizon’s Galaxy S II won’t have support for 4G LTE, but the twitter account has already started retracting on the ‘statement’.   Not one hour after the initial tweet landed, @vzwsupport is already trying to clarify things a bit.

Sprint’s version of the Galaxy S II, the “Within”, has also been spied hanging out in the FCC where it was listed as having support for WiMAX.  Should we go ahead and assume that AT&T’s “Attain” will be capable of handling the 4G HSPA+ network, too?  Yeah, we think we will.

August can’t get here quick enough.
