Microsoft is bringing greater mobility to the Surface Pro line by making Surface Pro with LTE Advanced available to business customers beginning December 2017.
With a Cat 9 modem, Surface Pro with LTE Advanced is the fastest LTE-enabled laptop in its class. It delivers global connectivity with support of 20 cellular bands.
Microsoft's Surface Pro with LTE Advanced will include an Intel Core i5 processor and a Qualcomm Snapdragon X16 modem. Microsoft says the Surface Pro that launched earlier this year would run for up to 13.5 hours watching video, and LTE support could impact that.
The Surface Pro with LTE model will be available first to business customers on December 1st. The base model will include an Intel Core i5 processor, 4 GB RAM, and 128 GB of SSD storage, and will be priced at $1,149.
