Microsoft's Surface Pro with LTE launches in December

Microsoft's Surface Pro with LTE launches in December

Speaking at Microsoft's Future Decoded event in London, Mr Panay said the firm wanted to help enable what he said was a new mobile "modern workplace". And while it'll be available to business customers first, Microsoft says it'll get to consumers some time in the first half of 2018, with more details to come. For example, the Surface engineering team has included 7 LTE antennas on top of the device for great connectivity. The device will be coming with a Cat 9 modem and is expected to be the fastest LTE enabled laptop.

There will be two versions of the Surface Pro LTE, one with 4GB RAM and 128GB storage, while another will get 8GB RAM and 256GB of storage, United States pricing comes in at $1,149 and $1,449 respectively.

Surface Pro with LTE Advanced follows on the heels of the recently-announced Surface Book 2, an updated version of the two-in-one laptop Microsoft first launched in 2015.

Linkin Park honours Chester Bennington with tribute concert
The concert was called Linkin Park Celebrates Life in Honour of Chester Bennington and was led by band mate Mike Shinoda . She said she planned to do just that, she said, via a new foundation she'd be setting up in Bennington's memory.

No words on how built-in LTE might impact battery life, estimated at up to 13.5 hours for regular Surface Pro SKUs.

This new Surface will be powered by Intel's Core i5 processor. On a related note, Microsoft earlier this month launched the second generation of its Surface Book laptops, called the Surface Book 2.

While Gavin specified failure rates among newer Surface releases, such as the Surface Laptop, Consumer Reports surveyed users of a broad range of Surface devices, including older tablet models. The 15-inch model will be available from Microsoft Stores, MicrosoftStore.com, and select retailers in the U.S., and will be available in the United Kingdom from early next year. It also supports accessories like the Surface Pen and the Surface Dial. The cheapest model costs $1,499, while the most powerful variant is priced at $3,299.
