Microsoft's Surface Pro LTE, a two-in-one laptop with built-in 4G networking - will appear in December.
The long-rumoured device was first hinted at during an event in Shanghai back in May. However, this week the company has finally confirmed that the two-in-one device will be available from December, as rumours on V3's sister site The Inquirer had suggested.
Speaking at the Microsoft's Future Decoded event in London on Tuesday, Surface boss Panay confirmed the Surface Pro LTE's imminent release date, but said the device would be targeted only at businesses initially.
Beyond that, a frighteningly-intense Panay didn't reveal much else about the hybrid device, and failed to mention UK pricing, when it'll be available to consumers, nor the kind of battery life users can expect from the device.
He did confirm, however, that the Surface Pro LTE will ship with a mobile Intel Core i5 processor under the hood, alongside a Cat 9 modem and 20 LTE bands to ensure worldwide cellular compatibility.
There will be two configurations, one with a plainly inadequate 4GB of RAM and 128GB storage, and another with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. These will be priced at $1,149 and $1,449 in the US, respectively, the firm announced at its London-based event. The price in pounds sterling will therefore be about the same, including VAT.
Today's launch comes just weeks after the company showed off its second-gen Surface Book, which claims to cram the power of a desktop into a laptop.
The Surface Book 2, available in 13.5in and 15in configurations, runs Core i5 or Core i6 processors, discrete Nvidia graphics (on the higher-priced models) packs up to 16GB RAM and claims to offer a hefty 17 hours of battery life.
Panos said on Tuesday that the smaller model will be available in the UK on 16 November, with the 15-inch model set to arrive early next year. Pricing details have not yet been announced.
