US Cellular has just announced its first LTE devices, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy S Aviator from Samsung.

Regional carrier US Cellular had announced back in 2010 that it'd go live with LTE this year, and it's just announced the first two devices that will take advantage of the network — one tablet and one phone, both from Samsung. The tablet is the ubiquitous Galaxy Tab 10.1, likely a rehash of the version already available on Verizon, while the phone is known as the Galaxy S Aviator and features a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display, 8-megapixel camera, and HDMI port atop Android 2.3.6 — seemingly some sort of Galaxy S / Galaxy S II hybrid with LTE tacked on (quite possibly a Droid Charge rebrand). The Tab will come in March and the phone in April; initial markets will be in Wisconsin, Maine, Iowa, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Texas, with additional expansion promised throughout 2012.
