If the only thing keeping you from buying a Windows RT tablet was the lack of support for 4G LTE wireless, Microsoft’s got you covered. Starting March 18th, you’ll be able to pick up a Surface 2 with support for AT&T and Verizon LTE networks and 64GB of storage for $679.
Or you could save a bundle and buy a Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet with prices starting at $399.
The Surface 2 features an NVIDIA Tegra 4 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and a full HD display while Nokia’s tablet has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core CPU, 2GB of RAM… and a full HD display.
Microsoft’s tablet does have a few things going for it including support for the company’s Touch and Type covers and when you buy the tablet it will come with 200GB of cloud storage with Microsoft OneDrive for 2 years.
But $679 is still a lot of money for a Windows tablet that only runs Windows Store apps (and Microsoft Office), but not traditional desktop Windows software.
