Microsoft will release Surface Pro with LTE Advanced in December

Courting companies directly to get the Surface Pro LTE to incorporate with their work secures the product's success as majority of its sales will be in bulk rather than in retail. But even with these evolutionary advancements to the Surface family, it's hard to forget what Consumer Reports said about the reliability of Microsoft's Surface devices. In fact, it revealed the device on stage at Future Decoded event in London this morning, a business-focused event, highlighting its belief that the device will appeal more business users than regular consumers. It comes with global connectivity and fast transfer speeds, thanks to a Cat 9 4G LTE modem. There's no specifics on battery life yet, but this year's earlier Surface release promised 13.5 hours while watching video.

The Microsoft Surface Pro with LTE Advanced (not the industry's greatest name, by the way) will "begin shipping to business customers in December", expressly targeting workforce mobility.

In Canada, the Surface Book 2 starts at $1979. ZDNet's sister site CNET praised the sharp display and high-end specs of the first-gen Surface Book but criticised the high cost of the premium models and quirks in the design. It also supports accessories like the Surface Pen and the Surface Dial.

Panoy said customers had demanded "full LTE" and a "power PC format". The 13-inch models will be available from Microsoft Stores, MicrosoftStore.com and retailers in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, China, Japan, United Kingdom, France, Germany and Austria.

An extra bonus for British customers is that the 13-inch Surface Book 2 will be landing in the United Kingdom in November, with the 15-inch model available next year.
