I know Joanna and I are a bit geeked over it as it will break our dependency on Wi-Fi and I suspect it will be a major boon for folks using their Surface 2 LTE for business purposes.
UPDATE: If you want to get a Surface 2 LTE and set it up with the AT&T plan, here is what you do:
- Purchase Surface 2 LTE from the above Microsoft store
- Take it to AT&T store to get a 4G LTE plan, plans start at $15.00/mo
- Or if you have an existing AT&T shared plan, you can add the Surface 2 LTE to your plan for just $10.
