Microsoft to Launch Surface Pro with LTE in December

CNBC Tech Surface Pro review 7

"We thought it was unfortunate the report that Consumer Reports put out, partly used the methodology that is consistent with how you evaluate home appliances and applied it to laptops".

Microsoft first unveiled its Surface Pro with LTE earlier this year, promising a release before the end of 2017.

Despite Microsoft's checkered hardware history, the business-friendly line of Surface hybrid devices and PCs has made fans out of many corporate technology buyers.

Business users who are exhausted of hunting for available and presumably safe WiFi network connections for their Surface Pros will soon have a new option, announced Microsoft on October 31. The newest model will begin shipping to business customers in December.

He did confirm, however, that the Surface Pro LTE will ship with a mobile Intel Core i5 processor under the hood, alongside a Cat 9 modem and 20 LTE bands to ensure worldwide cellular compatibility. And while it'll be available to business customers first, Microsoft says it'll get to consumers some time in the first half of 2018, with more details to come.

Each Surface Pro also features up to 17-hours of battery life. If that timing sounds familiar, it's because a Microsoft employee accidentally revealed it during an Ignite session last month.

The biggest change in the Surface Book 2 is that it's also available with a 15-inch display, which has a slightly higher-resolution 3,240 by 2,160 PixelSense touchscreen.

And those hoping to use the Surface Book 2 as their primary work device will be pleased.

Panos said on Tuesday that the smaller model will be available in the United Kingdom on 16 November, with the 15-inch model set to arrive early next year. The cheapest model costs $1,499, while the most powerful variant is priced at $3,299.
