Microsoft's Surface Pro gets LTE Advanced option this December

Microsoft's Surface Pro with LTE launches in December

To achieve this the tablet is equipped with a Cat 9 Qualcomm X16 Gigabit Class LTE modem with support for 20 cellular bands, which means that the tablet can be used on 4G networks nearly anywhere in the world.

Microsoft is basing its claims on LTE Advanced download speeds of up to 450 Mbps (megabits per second), compared to the 300 Mbps speeds typically attained by rival LTE laptops and two-in-one devices with 12- or 13-inch screen sizes, which generally feature a Cat 6 modem.

Make no mistake, the Surface Pro LTE is a seriously hardcore machine. The announcement was made by the company corporate vice president, Microsoft Devices, Panos Panay in a keynote session at Future Decoded in London.

The company is aiming the Surface at business users first, and there's no word on exactly when a consumer-facing model will come. It is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon X16 mode, that supports LTE-A networks on 20 different bands. "The entire Surface family is built to bring the best of Windows to life, including the new mixed reality, 3D, and inking experiences in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update", said Panay. The basic model with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of SSD will set businesses back $1,149, or you can choose to double those numbers to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD for $1,449.

Microsoft is targeting the new Surface Pro LTE initially at business customers, who will be able be able to get their hands on one from December this year, but it should be available to all customers in 2018.

Microsoft claims that using a preproduction model they clocked in up to 17 hours of video playback on a single charge. The office is no more restricted to some enclosed space rather it could be at home or at some café or at some city anywhere in the world or on some flight.
