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/

Cisco AnyConnect (for example) client cannot and will not be available on Windows RT as long as Microsoft refuses to allow third-party developer access to APIs other than the WinRT API, at least in its current state.
Yes I know there is a built-in Microsoft VPN client, but that doesn't work with many VPNs, especially SSL type VPNs. It also is missing features that IPSec VPNs need...
My statement still stands. Go search the Microsoft Community forms for Windows RT and VPN and you will find several long threads with many people pleading for this... but all this has fallen on deaf ears... but supposedly people have been loudly requesting an LTE version of the Surface?
