Surface Pro with LTE will reportedly be available on December 1

When Microsoft initially debuted the new Surface Pro in May, it also announced that an LTE version of the tablet would be available at some point in the future. Now, Neowin reports that Microsoft revealed during an Ignite 2017 session that the LTE Surface Pro will be made available on December 1.

Since the initial Surface Pro reveal, Microsoft has been otherwise mum concerning the LTE model. Earlier in September, the LTE model popped up for preorder on at a UK retailer with a December release date, lining up with Microsoft's reported release date. According to Neowin, LTE will only be available with the two Core i5 variants of the Surface Pro, which also lines up with what we saw from the UK retailer listing.

Speculation has pointed to Microsoft's upcoming Future Decoded event as a possible formal venue for a formal announcement concerning the LTE Surface Pro. Expect to hear more when that event takes place at the end of October.
