Rogers Communications said its LTE network is now live in St. John's, Newfoundland, making it the first carrier to bring the fastest wireless speeds to that province.

John Boynton, Rogers Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer said: "With Rogers LTE wireless network coverage, customers have access to speeds similar to broadband connections, making it easier for people to use their mobile devices to download apps, stream HD videos and music or play on-line games, with virtually no delays or buffering."

Additionally, Rogers bolstered its LTE device lineup on Feb. 27th with two new smartphones, the Nokia Lumia 900 and the HTC One X.

The Nokia Lumia 900, the first Windows Phone LTE smartphone, sports a 4.3" AMOLED screen, 1.4 GHz processor, a 1 megapixel front- facing camera for video calling and Nokia's exclusive Carl Zeiss 8MP back-camera.

For the hi-fi enthusiasts, the HTC One X will be the first smartphone in Canada designed with Beats Audio. The Ice Cream Sandwich-powered phone includes  a dual-core 1.5Ghz processor, HTC Sense 4.0 and a new camera.

Both phones should be available by April. See Rogers RedBoard for additional details.
