Microsoft's Corporate Vice President of Devices Panos Panay today announced at Future Decoded 2017 in London that the Surface Pro with LTE Advanced will be available starting December for business customers.
The Surface Pro with LTE Advanced has a Cat 9 modem, which according to Microsoft, makes it the fastest LTE-enabled laptop in its class. The Surface Pro LTE also delivers global connectivity, with support for 20 cellular bands making it a great choice for people who are always on the go or traveling between countries.
Microsoft hasn't yet confirmed which Surface Pro configurations will be available with LTE, and it appears the device won't be available to consumer customers until 2018. The Surface Pro product page on the Microsoft Store stated earlier that the LTE model would be available at retail in the spring of 2018, however, that reference has now been removed.
Today's Surface Pro LTE announcement comes after its initial unveiling back in May. Microsoft stated then that the LTE model would be made available at the end of this year, and bringing the Surface Pro with LTE Advanced to business customers in December meets that goal.
Microsoft believes that the future of computing is mobile, which is why it's important to have products that support LTE capabilities. The office isn't just a fixed place anymore. People are working from their homes, on the go, in coffee shops, and in cars. Microsoft believes LTE will help people stay productive on the go.
