Just as promised, Microsoft's LTE-equipped Surface Pro is now available for business customers. While Microsoft hasn't yet listed the always-connected tablet for sale on its own store just yet, it's already available in 4GB RAM and 8GB RAM models from Microsoft partner Insight (via Neowin).
Both versions of the LTE Surface Pro run on an Intel Core i5 processor. And aside from the RAM differences, the tablets also differ in terms of storage, with the base model coming in at 128GB, and the top-end model coming in at 256GB. Each model is equipped with Qualcomm's Snapdragon X16 LTE modem, which is packed into the space where the fan would sit on the Core i7 Surface Pro. In an engineering overview released earlier this year, Microsoft stated that the device's fanless design allowed the company to develop the LTE Surface Pro without impacting its size or weight.
The launch comes after Microsoft announced an LTE model was in the works at the initial Surface Pro unveiling in May. This marks the first Surface Pro model that has been equipped with LTE, but it's not the first Surface to do so. That honor belongs to the Surface 3.
Corporate customers can currently get their hands on the base Surface Pro with LTE Advanced for $1,149.99, while the top-end model can be picked up for $1,449.99. Presumably, the LTE models will make their way to the hands of general consumers at some point in the near future.
