Microsoft's Surface Team announced yesterday the 64 GB "mobile broadband-ready version" of the Surface 2 tablet and today the device which carries a $679 USD price tag goes on sale through Microsoft's US commercial resellers. Yesterday it became available via Best Buy and Microsoft Stores for the same price, which is $130 USD higher than the Microsoft Surface 2 without 4G LTE connectivity.

Except the improved connectivity, the Surface 2 AT&T 4G LTE has the same features and specs as the standard 64 GB Surface 2 tablet:

  • Processor: 1.7 GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 4
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; 64 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 64 GB more, as well as 200 GB of free OneDrive storage for two years

  • Cameras: 3.5 MP front, 5 MP back
  • Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 3.0, HD video out and cover ports, GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS
  • Operating system and software: Windows 8.1 RT and Office 2013 RT
  • Weight/Dimensions: 1.49 pounds; 10.81X6.79X0.35 inches
  • Autonomy: 7-15 days idle, up to 10 hours video playback

This slate comes with a dual-position kickstand and also features two microphones and Dolby sound stereo speakers.

Unfortunately, there is no word about the availability of this variant outside the US for now.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
