FCC receives a visit from LTE enabled Microsoft Surface 2, bound for AT&T?

FCC receives a visit from LTE enabled Microsoft Surface 2, bound for AT&T?
If you've been dying for a Microsoft Surface 2 with LTE connectivity, we have some good news for you. A version of the tablet found to have paid a visit with the FCC, was equipped with accessibility to AT&T's LTE band and HSPA signal. The FCC filing covers a "portable computing device" with a 10.6 inch panel, and coming from Microsoft, that seems enough information to say that an LTE-enabled Microsoft Surface 2 is on the way.

Did the Microsoft Surface 2 with LTE support just visit the FCC?

Assuming that there are no other changes, we can re-examine the specs for the slate. The Microsoft Surface 2 is equipped with that 10.6 inch screen with resolution of 1920 x 1080, which results in a pixel density of 208ppi. A quad-core 1.7GHz Tegra 4 SoC is under the hood, with 2GB of RAM inside. 32GB of native storage is on board, along with a microSD slot. A 5MP camera (without flash) is positioned on back while a 3.5MP camera is on the front of the slab. Windows RT 8.1 is pre-installed.

Now that the visit with the FCC is out of the way, it shouldn't be terribly long before we see this tablet on the shelves at AT&T.

the Surface 2 dispite not being a X86 CPU tablet that runs Older Legacy Windows programs is a good Tablet for students and business people who want to do Business production as well as do Entertainment stuff on a tablet. However All Eyes are on Microsoft now to see when the "Surface Pro LTE" comes to the market place.I think this is the One that will really kick off a really big increase in the sales of Microsoft "Surface Pro" tablets. Many Business people are Mobile people and they need a tablet that they can run with. I think the "Surface Pro LTE Tablet will have a different design than the one now on the market place hopefully it will be lighter than the present one
