Microsoft Announces Surface Pro With LTE Connectivity

Microsoft's Surface Pro with LTE launches in December

The Microsoft Surface family will see an upgrade this holiday season with the Surface Book 2 shipping on November 16, followed by the Surface Pro LTE on December 1.

"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 will launch a version of its Surface Pro laptop with built-in LTE connectivity here in December.

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.

"Today we are here to talk about the future", he said.

If you use LTE network exclusively on the Surface Pro device, you will get about 90% battery life of a WiFi model.

While Sophia was granted citizenship, we do not know for sure how many rights she has as a robot. The female design of the robot prompted criticism from human rights activists around the world.

Microsoft may not have been lucky with mobile phones, but its Surface line-up is getting a good response from consumers.

The video playback battery life on a Surface Pro LTE device will be same as that of Surface Pro WiFi model. For example, the Surface engineering team has included 7 LTE antennas on top of the device for great connectivity.

Microsoft claims the new Surface Book offers fives times the graphics performance of the original and is twice as powerful as the latest MacBook Pro.

Built to compete with Chromebooks-albeit not in price considering the $999 entry-level price-the Surface Laptop runs Windows 10 S, a version of Windows that only supports apps from the Microsoft Store (formerly the Windows Store app marketplace). It has a 12.3-inch PixelSense display and is powered by Intel 7th-gen Kaby lake processor.

The Surface Book 2 will cost from $1,499, for the lowest spec 13-inch model, through to $3,299, for the highest spec 15-inch model.
