Microsoft has officially rolled out a 4G LTE version of Surface 2 in the US today, 18 March 2014. The Surface 2 (AT&T 4G LTE) is a 64GB mobile broadband-ready version that will retail for $679 USD (SRP).


The Surface 2 is an enhanced version of the original Surface, now slimmer, lighter and more powerful. The new Windows RT 8.1-based tablet sports a crisp 10.6-inch ClearType Full HD display, powerful quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor, 5MP rear camera and 3.5MP front-facing HD camera, full-size USB3.0 and now 4G LTE. The Surface 2 comes unlocked with support for LTE bands 4, 7 and 17.

The Surface 2 features a two-angle kickstand and retains the ultra-durable VaporMg body in magnesium finish and weighs just a little over 1kg.

Every purchase of the Surface 2 will come with 200GB of free OneDrive storage for two years. Every Surface 2 also comes with Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013 RT and Outlook 2013 RT.

AT&T’s 4G LTE network is based on LTE bands 4 and 17 – 700Mhz, 1700Mhz bands and may expand to bands 29 and 30 in the future. No word on 4G LTE support on other networks like Verizon, Sprint or T-Mobile as yet.

The Surface 2 LTE is available at Microsoft retail stores, www.microsoftstore.com, www.bestbuy.com and all Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile Stores and US commercial retailers.

Closer to home, the new tablet was recently launched in Malaysia on 14 March 2014. No information of the 4G LTE version hitting Malaysia anytime soon.
