Microsoft began the sale of its LTE-enabled Surface Pro device roughly in the first week of December. At that time, the Redmond giant was only selling it to their business customers. Much to the relief of the rest of the population, Microsoft promised that they would bring the product to their other consumers for purchase in early 2018.
A new report by The Verge now claims that the Redmond technology giant has officially opened the sales of its LTE Advanced Surface Pro device for the commercial market.
The product can be purchased from the official Microsoft Store. In other words, normal users like you and me can quickly scroll through the Microsoft Store and buy an LTE-enabled Surface Pro as soon as possible, regardless of whether the use is of business type or otherwise.
When it comes to talking about the Commercial version of Surface Pro LTE Advanced, the device has two different configurations. These two are available for sale on the Microsoft Store. There are major similarities between the two – including the existence of an Intel Core i5 processor and similar storage capacities, i.e. 4GB of RAM along with 128GB of ROM and 8GB of RAM along with 256GB of inbuilt memory. While one comes for a price of $1,149, the other one comes for a price of $1,449. The more expensive one obviously offers double the storage capacity.
Individuals are advised to note that neither of the two versions includes a Type Cover or Surface Pen. Interested purchasers are required to buy these products separately. “Microsoft is primarily focusing on commercial customers with the LTE versions of the Surface Pro, so it’s not clear whether or not this is what Microsoft meant by offering the devices to consumers to purchase, or if there will be additional mass-market configurations getting LTE support later in 2018,” noted The Verge.
