After going on sale for business customers in December, Microsoft's Surface Pro with LTE is now available to preorder for the general public. Available for $1,449 at the Microsoft Store, the preorders for the LTE tablet come ahead of its May 1 release in the U.S., Canada, and Australia.
Microsoft is set to offer two models of the Surface Pro with LTE, both of which are powered by an Intel Core i5 processors.
They differ in terms of RAM and storage, with the lower-end model coming in at $1,149 for 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, while the top model packs 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for $1,449.
Update: Microsoft is only selling the Surface Pro LTE in one SKU, which is 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for $1,449, with now lower pricepoint and configuration.
Curiously, the only model currently available for preorder is the more expensive option. In either case, both models are equipped with LTE connectivity, courtesy of Qualcomm's Snapdragon XLTE modem.
According to the Microsoft Store, preorders should ship by May 1. Just be aware that you'll have to pick up the Surface Type Cover and Surface Pen separately. And if you're still on the fence, check out our Surface Pro with LTE review.
