Back in September, I posted on a rumor that an LTE equipped Surface Pro was going to be announced with it likely being available in December of this year. We can now put those rumors to rest. The LTE Surface Pro is real.
In London today at the Future Decoded conference, Microsoft announced two LTE versions of the Surface which will be available starting December 1st. Both models are based on the Intel Core i5 processor and both have the Qualcomm X16 LTE modem with 20 mobile bands support for global use. The Core i5 with 4GB of RAM and 128GB SSD will be $1149 while the bigger model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD will be $1449.
In all, there are 7 LTE antenna built into Surface with the modem built into the motherboard of the device. Also, it will support eSIM technology for provisioning without a SIM card.
