We found that Microsoft
’s Surface 2
is a solid-enough tablet
, but a new version launching tomorrow is bringing a much-needed feature with 4G LTE
connectivity. In order to be a true mobile device, in the sense that you can stay connected anywhere you might find yourself, the Surface needed mobile broadband capabilities.
The new version, the Surface 2 (AT&T 4G LTE), offers (you guessed it) mobile broadband connectivity on AT&T’s network, and it comes with 64GB of onboard storage. You’ll pay a pretty penny for the device, as it comes in at $679 compared to $549 for a 64GB WiFi-only Surface 2. (The 32GB Surface 2 is $499.) The price includes 200GB of free OneDrive storage for a year.
Surface accessories are fine items, but they also tend to be pricey. However, for a limited time at least, you can snag a black Touch Cover, 2-year warranty, $25 Windows App card, and Incipio sleeve for $169 instead of the regular $243.98.
You can buy your own Surface 2 (AT&T 4G LTE) starting tomorrow at the Microsoft Store or Best Buy.
