Samsung isn't saving extra-quick mobile data for its smartphones. The company has unveiled a version of the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 with 225Mbps LTE-Advanced inside, giving the tablet a very fast connection while away from WiFi. It's enough to grab 421 songs in a single minute, if you believe the official estimates. It's otherwise the same Android slate you've seen before, although that's not a bad thing given the slim profile and super-vivid display. The catch? You'll likely have to move to get one. Samsung has only announced the upgraded Tab S for South Korea, where it will cost 799,700 won ($743). Given that other countries haven't hopped on the LTE-A bandwagon yet, you could be waiting a while before this device (or more likely, one of its sequels) comes your way.
