Surface Pro with LTE now up for sale at the Microsoft Store

Microsoft's Surface Pro with LTE initially went on sale at the beginning of December, but only for business customers through a third-party seller. However, now the always-connected tablet is up for order from the online Microsoft Store (opens in new tab).

As Neowin points out, the listing has actually been in the store for around a week, but it was showing as "out of stock" until now. It's still labeled as a "commercial" device, so it's intended for business customers. However, there doesn't appear to be a limitation in place, so anyone should be able to order one.

The Surface Pro with LTE Advanced only comes in two Intel Core i5 models, and only the model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage is currently listed as available on the Microsoft Store. The tablet is equipped with Qualcomm's Snapdragon X16 LTE modem, which is packed into the space where the fan would be on the Core i7 Surface Pro. Microsoft previously offered a look at some of the engineering work that went into creating the LTE model that's worth checking out.

If you're interested, you can check out the Surface Pro with LTE at the Microsoft Store for $1,449 now. The tablet can also be found in stock at some retail Microsoft Stores. Presumably, the cheaper model with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage will be available from Microsoft at some point as well.

  • A little proof reading may help before posting... "Surface Pro with LTE Advanced now up for sale at the Microsoft Store" ...makes more sense than the previous...
  • I've noticed that web-wide, especially over the last year, proofing has been done with less and less care. I suspect it's due to auto correction and our society's need to go forever faster... Concentrating on the next thing before finishing the current.
  • I wish Microsoft would list what LTE bands this device will support.
  • I agree... They briefly list them in the video..Just a quick search on the internet found me this: GSM850, GSM900, GSM1800, GSM1900, UMTS2100 (B1), UMTS1900 (B2), UMTS850 (B5), LTE2100 (B1), LTE1900 (B2), LTE1800 (B3), LTE1700/2100 (B4), LTE850 (B5), LTE2600 (B7), LTE900 (B8), LTE700 (B12), LTE700 (B13), LTE700 (B17), LTE800 (B18), LTE800 (B19), LTE800 (B20), LTE850 (B26), LTE700 (B28), LTE700 (B29), LTE2300 (B30), TD-LTE2600 (B38), TD-LTE1900 (B39), TD-LTE2300 (B40), TD-LTE2500 (B41)
  • Was hoping to see Bands 66 and 71 (T-Mobile).  Thanks for providing the specs.

  • Was up for sale...US store is sold out it seems. :)
  • You would think that MS would have enought stock for the day.   Nope
  • Are the new windows on ARM tablets also using LTE Cat 9?
  • The Windows on ARM devices also using the Qualcomm X16 modem integrated into the Snapdragon 835 SoC.
  • Having bought the Surface 3 with LTE (4 GB) I expect these Windows on ARM to be underpowered.
  • I'm having trouble finding this particular model especially
  • Follow the link from theVerge's article to go to the "commerical" web page.    But for now they say OUT OF STOCK.   Great way to roll out the new models.
  • I understand why not having the i7 allows them to put the LTE modem in, but it seems like they should have had a 512 GB and 16 GB RAM model.
  • Agreed... Got mine a few weeks ago and hat is my only complaint
