Microsoft has just announced that the cellular version of its Surface Pro hybrid tablet is going to be released in December
Even though the Surface Pro was announced earlier this year, it did not have a release date. Moreover, at that time, the US technology company said that the device would support mobile connectivity.
Now, Microsoft has confirmed that the device will come with data connectivity and will start shipping in December; users can input a Nano SIM or use the in-built eSIM to connect to a carrier.
“Half of the global workforce will be mobile by 2020. The office is no longer restricted to a set of buildings — it’s at home, in a cafe, a city across the globe, or on a plane,” Panos Panay, corporate vice president of Microsoft Devices, said
“With so many changing locations your device becomes your office and many of our customers tell us that’s what their Surface is to them — a mobile office.”
The Surface Pro is a high-end tablet that comes with a keyboard and competes with the iPad Pro. The device is a key revenue driver at the moment, while Microsoft stated that the Surface line rose revenues by 12%.
