Microsoft has started selling to the general public the Long-Term Evolution (LTE) equipped version of its Surface Pro notebook -- which were earlier sold to business customers only. "The Surface Pro with LTE was not available through the general Microsoft Store until today. Consumers can head over to the store now and place an order for this device," Ubergizmo reported on Thursday.
Microsoft Surface Pro with LTE Advanced comes in two versions -- the lower variant has a 128GB SSD with 4GB RAM for $1,150. The higher-end model doubles the specifications for 256GB storage and 8GB RAM for $1,450. Both the devices feature Intel Core i5 chipset and claim up to 13.5 hours of battery life. There is a Snapdragon X16 LTE modem, making the device capable of gigabit cellular speeds, although Microsoft has capped it at 450Mbps.
The tech giant is primarily focusing on commercial customers with the LTE versions of the Surface Pro. It was not clear whether this was what the company meant by offering the devices to consumers to purchase, The Verge reported.
