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/

Then you are one of the fortunate ones... your place of employment uses a VPN that works with the built-in VPN client. See my above post. Many others aren't nearly so lucky...

Again my comment still stands. Since SSL VPN implementation isn't standard, there is no generic client that can work with them... correct me if I'm wrong.

If VPN is hosted on a Cisco firewall, you aren't. Luckily most companies use Windows for VPN hosting. However quite a few do it through the Cisco.
