Pricing leaks for AT&T's 64GB Microsoft Surface 2 with LTE connectivity
Pricing has leaked for the 64GB Microsoft Surface 2 with LTE connectivity, for AT&T. According to a published report on Monday night, the slate will be offered for $679. That compares to a price of $549 for the 64GB Microsoft Surface 2 sans LTE support. This will be the first Microsoft Surface model to be offered with such connectivity.

The tablet is powered by Windows Phone 8.1 RT and includes support for 850/900/1800/1900 2G bands, 3G UMTS (bands 1,2, 5) and LTE (bands 4, 7, 17). Toss in  Wi-Fi a/b/g/n and you will be connected just about everywhere.

The Microsoft Surface 2 features a 10.6 inch IPS LCD display with resolution of 1920 x 1080, which results in a pixel density of 208ppi. A quad-core 1.7GHz Tegra 4 CPU is under the hood with 2GB of RAM on board. Native storage rings up at 32GB and there is a microSD slot included for those who need more memory space. Back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 5MP and 3.5MP respectively.

We figure that AT&T will make this slate available shortly, so stay tuned.

If Samsung Note Pro 12.2 can price it this way so can surface 2. I have already bought a Note Pro 12.2 LTE as I actually like the ideal of owning a big tablet. Microsoft fans time for you to walk the talk.

MS fan here, i got a lynx 11.6 tab, no lte. I use my hotspot that is at 3gb of data as its data plan. I am never without my phone when the tablet is in hand. As well, i get full windows not android not RT, which means all my legacy apps work.

Hmm The Nokia 2520 uses the same OS and I think it is a bit cheaper 4G Tablet. the Nokia 2520 sells as low as 400 USA dollar. it has a plastic body therefore the Surface 2 beats it for build quality but you save 279 USA dollars buying the Nokia 2520 and it has a better display too. That is why I say Microsoft needs to make cheaper plastic body Surface Pro 2 and Surface 2 Tablet

why cheaper? you get what you pay for. I personally think this is to much, but i would look for alternatives, and guess what i found one. Not android and not iOS, but a full windows tablet. I would not want surface to go away from the vapor magnesium to appeal to the masses. MS should rely on 3rd party, like Lenovo, Asus, HP etc to build those. Also we have no clue what the contract price will be if there is one or not.
