Build 2014 is right around the corner, and we’re expecting a few big announcements from Microsoft during that three day event. While Windows Phone 8.1 is anticipated to be unveiled, we have also been hearing about a Surface 2 with LTE. Announced last year during a Reddit AMA, a recent FCC filing suggests that the device is close to being released.

Windows Phone Central has now learned that Surface 2’s with LTE for AT&T have now started shipping to select Microsoft Stores to build up inventory.

Photos of the device, including the box that reads “AT&T Network Ready” have been sent our way, though we have been asked to not post them due to the sensitive nature of the material.

We’re digging to find more information, including pricing and exact availability, but with Stores taking stock, a release date shouldn’t be too far off. No word of frequent Microsoft partner Verizon will have a version available. Interestingly, AT&T will have two Windows 8 RT devices with LTE, including the Nokia Lumia 2520.

Will you pick up a Surface 2 with LTE?
