Kensington Dock is the Surface Studio mini you’ve always wanted

Kensington Dock is the Surface Studio mini you’ve always wanted

While the Surface Pro 2-in-1 tablets were a surprise hit, they weren’t exactly a revolutionary device at a time when 2-in-1 tablets were becoming more common. Few, however, expected Microsoft to come up with the Surface Studio. It was a creative’s dream come true, if not for the obscenely high price tag and, to some extent, the huge size as well. What if you already have a recent Surface Pro and was fine with that size but wanted the flexibility and stability of a Surface Studio. Thankfully, accessory maker Kensington now has an answer for that: the SD7000 Dual 4K Surface Pro Docking Station.

Microsoft Surface USB-C dongle is a joke

Microsoft Surface USB-C dongle is a joke

It’s almost embarrassing, at least for Microsoft, that Apple would be at the forefront of pushing new standards like USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 while its premier flagship computers obstinately remain in the recent past. Admittedly, there are business reasons for doing clinging to USB-A and DisplayPorts but Microsoft seems to have intentionally missed the USB-C boat even in its latest Surface Pro and Surface Laptop. It promised to dangle a dongle in front of USB-C lovers and that promise is nearly fulfilled. USB-C lovers, however, would probably feel insulted rather than assured.

Surface Pro with LTE Advanced is here, for business customers

Surface Pro with LTE Advanced is here, for business customers

The Surface line of 2-in-1 tablets have changed over the years, but two things have remained constant: it’s hinge design and its lack of cellular connectivity. One of those changes today as Microsoft finally announces the launch of is long-awaited LTE-enabled Surface Pro model. In fact, it actually comes with LTE Advanced, a.k.a. LTE-A. But before you go scrambling for your credit card, you should probably know two things. One, it won’t be available until December. Two, Microsoft is aiming it at its business customers only for now.

Surface Pro LTE models are coming in December

Surface Pro LTE models are coming in December

It's no Surface Pro 5 but, given the changes Microsoft has made, it could have very well be called one. But perhaps one of the most significant changes made to Redmond's premium 2-in-1 device is the addition of built-in LTE connectivity. That, however, was four months ago and, save for a premature preorder listing, there was nary a word about it. At Ignite 2017 this week, a company spokesperson semi-officially confirmed at least a launch date, which will take place right at the start of December.

New Surface Pro LTE goes on pre-order in UK ahead of reveal

Sometimes, people are just too eager to get the ball rolling, especially on a good thing.
