Microsoft's Surface Pro with LTE launches in December

Surface Pro

As Microsoft's hardware chief did earlier this year, Gavin challenged the methodology used by Consumer Reports at the time.

The device features a Cat 9 modem, making it "the fastest LTE-enabled laptop in its class" with download speeds up to 450Mbps, Microsoft Surface boss Panos Panay wrote in a Tuesday blog post. The modem supports 20 different radio bands and as such should support LTE connectivity in most countries, provided that a suitable SIM is installed. Now Microsoft has confirmed that it will launch the new Surface Pro on December 1st. While sales of Surface tablets and laptops slumped during the quarter ending March 31 this year, with revenue falling 26 percent year-on-year to $831 million, they were up 12 percent year-on-year for the most recent quarter - a rise that Microsoft attributes to the release of the Surface Laptop.

"The entire Surface family is built to bring the best of Windows to life, including the new mixed reality, 3D, and inking experiences in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update", Panay wrote.

According to Ars Technica, two existing Surface Pro models packing Core i5 CPUs will get an LTE Advanced modem.
