Surface 2 Lte


Recommended Posts

My complaints are few concerning the 2520:

  • Screen is a fingerprint magnet
  • No built in stand
  • No full size USB socket (OTG socket which requires a converter)

Now that I have a power keyboard for the 2520, I seldom take the tablet out of the case because of the keyboard. So, my additional complaints are:

  • The combined keyboard, case, tablet is a little bulky.
  • No pocket for carrying accessories like:
    • Flash drive
    • Capacitive touch stylus.
    • Microfiber cloth to wipe off fingerprints.
    • Micro HDMI cable

All of the above things are minor but, I didn't have issues with when I carried around my Surface RT in a sleeve.


However, the positives of the 2520 are:

  • Battery life
  • Screen brightness
  • performance
  • 4G LTE (always connected)
  • Power keyboard
    • Extra battery
    • keyboard feel (easier to tell what keys you are on, without looking, compared to the Surface Type keyboards)
    • Quieter than the Surface Type Keyboards (less clicky)
    • Dual full size USB 2.0 ports
  • NFC
  • Nokia Apps (Not sure if only Nokia Maps is the only app that is shared for free now)

Can you imagine if the keyboard had been backlit. One can dream

Now that I have an updated surface type 2 keyboard, I miss it when I switch between my surface and my 2520. Definitely not a deal breaker.



Not sure what the issue was that neither Nokia or MS were unable to figure out how to do the backlit/power keyboards.

Hard to justify given the price with the 2520 out there, I was hoping to see some kind of a deal with AT&T and nothing today.

I wonder what the 'Next' pricing is on it. With the 2520 its $25 for 20months. So basically interest financing.

I am not sure what deals the Microsoft Store is running, but at Best Buy you can add the Surface 2 4G LTE to your ATT account and get $100 off with a two year contract. ATT will also give you a $100 bill credit for adding a new line to you account.


If you are needing a new ATT smartphone, Best Buy will also give you another $100 off the tablet if you purchase both devices at the same time. (With two year activation on both devices.)


So you could pay $479 in store and get another $100 off your bill making the Surface $379 for the whole deal.

Surface 2 LTE is in hand. Apparently, I was the first person to get one from my local store. I put my AT&T SIM (originally assigned to my 2520) in an everything just worked.


Any questions?
