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/
and Microsoft Retail Stores/

You can get a Surface Pro for $599 right now. If you wait for a sale you can get it for $499. I think the Surface 2 offers good value compared to an iPad but not at all when compared to the Surface Pro.
