Microsoft officially launches its 64GB, LTE Surface 2

We reported last week that Microsoft had plans to introduce an LTE version of its underdog Surface 2 tablet. Today, Microsoft confirmed those plans, and officially announced the 64GB tablet that is currently tied to AT&T’s LTE network.
 
According to Panos Panay, Corporate VP for Microsoft Surface, LTE connectivity has been a much-requested addition to the Surface 2. “Many of you have told me that you’d like the capability to be online, even when Wi-Fi isn’t available, so you can work, play, share, and communicate wherever you are,” said Panos in a blog post.
 
“In simple terms, we are CONTINUOUSLY being asked for a Surface that allows you to use mobile broadband.”

 
As previously reported, the LTE version of the Surface 2 commands a $130 price premium over its W-Fi-only sibling, making for a price tag of $679.
 
Microsoft says that its latest tablet will be available starting March 18 from Best Buy/BestBuy.com and Microsoft Retail Stores/MicrosoftStore.com.

Almost $700 for an RT tablet??? Who is smoking what over in Redmond? And can I have some please?

Why not just buy a "Pro" for that kind of money and tether it to your phone? It may cost a couple hundred more for a pro, but at least there is software that is actually useful on it!
