Microsoft Adds LTE Support to the Surface Tablet

Microsoft has shown off a new version of its Surface tablet that is going on sale in the USA with AT&T. The Surface 2 is a 64GB mobile broadband-ready version of Surface 2 that will be available to purchase for US$679 in the USA with immediate effect.

In the newer version of Surface 2, Microsoft has added the power and reach of AT&T’s 4G LTE network to an already fantastic device. Along with cellular connectivity, all of the refinements that went into Surface 2 are here: the increased speed and battery life, the dual-position kickstand, Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013 RT and Outlook 2013 RT, the full HD screen, the upgraded front- and rear-facing cameras and full-size USB 3.0 port, just to name a few.

Surface 2 (AT&T 4G LTE) will also include 200 GB of free OneDrive (formerly known as SkyDrive) storage for two years.
