Surface 3 for AT&T LTE may be launching as early as this week

Back when the Surface 3 was announced it was also revealed an LTE version would be released later in the summer. Looking at our late July status, we are certainly well into that season meaning we should start to see those devices appear. Indeed, in the UK and Germany the Surface 3 with LTE is already available with France and Spain following suit.

Windows Central has learned now through a few trusted sources that the Surface 3 with LTE is headed to AT&T in the United States either this week or next week at the latest.

We currently do not know the exact price nor configurations, although previous releases have seen the 64 and 128 GB variants being available. Regardless, we should be learning much more very soon as AT&T is likely to announce its availability in the coming days.

Our own Richard Devine recently wrote about why he is swapping his Surface Pro 3 for the Surface 3 with LTE. It is a good read if you are considering picking up this fab tablet with a keyboard.

The Surface 3 LTE features a 10.8-inch 1920x1280 display, Intel Atom x7-Z8700 CPU, 2 or 4 GB of RAM and up to 128 GB of internal storage and an 8 MP rear camera (3.5 MP in the front). It weighs a modest 1.37 pounds. Prices begin at $499 although the LTE module is likely to bump the price slightly higher.

There's no word if other US carriers will be picking up the Surface 3 with LTE.
