Microsoft has announced a 4G LTE-enabled Surface 2 tablet for AT&T at $679 (Rs. 41,400 approximately).

The Redmond giant confirmed the news via its official blog post and apparently calls the new variant the Surface 2 (AT&T 4G LTE).

The company revealed that the new Surface 2 (AT&T 4G LTE) tablet will be available at Microsoft's retail and online stores,, and various retailers in the US beginning Monday.

Notably, the Microsoft Surface 2 (AT&T 4G LTE) tablet variant packs similar specifications to the Surface 2, except that the former now supports Micro-SIM.

The company, in addition, has announced 200GB of free OneDrive (formerly known as SkyDrive) storage for two years with every purchase of the Surface 2 (AT&T 4G LTE) tablet.

The official blog post said, "In launching this new version of Surface 2, we're adding the power and reach of AT&T's 4G LTE network to an already fantastic device. Along with cellular connectivity, all of the refinements that went into Surface 2 are here: the increased speed and battery life, the dual-position kickstand, Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013 RT and Outlook 2013 RT, the full HD screen, the upgraded front- and rear-facing cameras and full-size USB 3.0 port, just to name a few."

For those unaware, Microsoft launched the Surface 2 in September 2013, alongside the Surface Pro 2 tablet.
