Microsoft launched the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 this past October, but it was in September that they announced the two new tablets and their respective accessories. It was shortly after the official announcement that the Surface team did an AMA on Reddit and divulged some interesting information. There would be a Surface 2 with LTE and GPS launching early in 2014. That’s a very vague timeframe, but it looks to be coming fairly soon. A Surface 2 with LTE was just spotted in the FCC.
Our friends over at Neowin were able to snag an image from the FCC filings before they were pulled. In those filings we see an LTE-enabled Surface 2. The documents were submitted on the 17th and 18th of this month and made public today. However, there’s a confidentiality request and we’re not able to pull them up now.
You’ll recall that Surface boss Panos Panay revealed last October that the Surface 2 with LTE would be coming to AT&T in the United States and to Vodafone throughout the rest of the world. He also didn’t give any concrete answers on whether or not we’d see a Surface Pro 2 with LTE.
No word on the Surface mini yet, hopefully we’ll see that at Build.
In the meantime let us know if you’re interested in a Surface 2 with LTE.
