A month after Microsoft's LTE-compatible Windows RT-based Surface 2 launched in the US, the tablet is is now available to UK customers for pre-order.
US consumers who were bowled over the the $679 price tag Microsoft slapped on for the Surface 2 4G there might be pleased they're not customers in the UK, where Microsoft is asking for £539 ($904) for the device.
The 10.6-inch 1920x1080 display ARM-based device runs Windows RT 8.1 and comes with RT-flavoured Office Home and Student and 64GB storage. It also offers 200GB OneDrive storage and Microsoft's kickstand but, as in the US, there's no keyboard/cover included, which in the UK is sold separately and costs around £109.
