No 4G?? Can a 4G USB modem be used with it?
If you are going to be purchasing a 4G device and want it to work with the RT Device I would recommend you pick up one of the 4G Access Points like the Verizon or ATT MiFi or Sprint Tri-Fi, because RT uses "Class Drivers" instead of Device Drivers you would need a USB Modem that had built-in or Windows RT Windows Update Drivers. With the Access Point type the RT just connects to the Wireless Connection. Another Option would be getting a 4G Smart Phone that supports Tethering.
IMO that's the best option.
I'll be getting the Surface Pro when it comes out and was suprised to see 4G not included. Especially at this price point.
I have a company phone only and they don't allow tethering so I will probably be getting a MiFi.
Why would Microsoft lock its devices out with ever-changing mobile technology? Just use a cheap mobile phone (or existing capable one) and tether it. Heck, even my *old* Nokia E72 can tether for the Surface. The new Sony Xperia V with LTE gives you LTE technology an a phone to boot. Or just use this-
Since he's opting for a pro (pro-forum ), he should have not trouble with connecting any 4g-solution (USB, Mobile, Router) with win-drivers.
Yep, with Surface Pro there are lots of 3/4g options, just not built in
In this respect, the Surface Pro is more like a laptop. Most laptops (as far as I know) don't come with 4G built in. This is a great first attempt at merging a laptop into a tablet. I can imagine Microsoft can eventually blow those other tablets out of the water as long as they keep putting out improvements on their tablets. You know, Surface Pro 2 with built in 4G, thinner, lighter, better camera, etc, etc, etc.
