The Surface Pro with LTE Advanced was supposed to start shipping by the end of this year according to Microsoft’s announcement back in May. But, as expected, after the company made that initial announcement and revealed its plans, Microsoft didn’t mention any of it again.
Let’s not forget that next month we’ll get some fresh news from the Future Decoded conference to be held in London. Future Decoded is the company’s enterprise-focused conference and will start from the 31st of October and end on the 1st of November. There, Microsoft’s hardware chief Panos Panay will deliver a keynote. We are also expecting to hear an announcement made by Microsoft regarding the availability and more precise details on the Surface Pro LTE version during the upcoming event.
Misco started taking pre-orders for the Surface Pro LTE
The online retailer from the UK, Misco, seems to have begun to take pre-orders for the Surface Pro LTE version.
This version will cost around £1,169 and will be powered by the Intel Core i5 processor. It will also include 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD. Meanwhile, the retailer removed the product from its offer.
If we compare this version with the non-LTE model, we’ll see that Microsoft is going to charge a £145 premium, a reasonable pricing choice.
In the United States, the Surface Pro LTE version of the device will probably be priced around $150 more than the non-LTE version. The UK online retailer also mentioned the fact that the Surface Pro LTE will start to ship sometime in December for customers who had previously placed their pre-orders.
