AT&T Gains Microsoft Surface 2 4G LTE Tablet

AT&T has just revealed that it is bringing yet another device into its tablet family. The newest addition coming to AT&T is Microsoft's Windows RT tablet. Known as the Microsoft Surface 2 4G LTE, this tablet is expected to hop onto AT&T's shelves beginning on March 18 with a $679 price tag.

The tablet itself is powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor and 2GB of RAM. In addition to that, this 4G LTE version of Microsoft's tablet comes with mostly the same internal and external specs as the WiFi only versions. The only real difference here is that Microsoft added a GSM micro-SIM card slot just beneath the volume button.

This 8.1" tablet also comes with 64GB of internal storage and also features Microsoft Office 2013, which is perfect for homework, office work or other tasks of the sort. As this is an AT&T tablet, it naturally comes with a few different data plan options. Included in the data plans is AT&T's family share plan, though the availability, coverage and pricing of the whole package still depends on your location. It has also been announced that this tablet ships unlocked with AT&T being the only carrier to provide this specific tablet.

While the price of this tablet may seem steep, it actually looks a lot better when compared to Apple's $800 price tag on the iPad Air. Taking into account that the tablet includes a built-in Micro HDMI port and full-size USB 3.0 ports along with the MicroSDXC card reader, this means Microsoft is offering a pretty competitive tablet. The only real downside to this tablet is the fact that it is incompatible with Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 PC programs and its app store is severely lacking.

However, like all products on today's market, individual needs are what determine which tablet is best for you. If you need a tablet that has productivity at its core and cellular on-the-go connectivity then this offering from Microsoft may be the perfect fit.
