    LTE versions coming later right, I am guessing 6 hour battery life with LTE?

    Pro Tip - $50 gift card from Best Buy if you pre-order there...

    That LTE version will be a great mobile worker, ie Technican in the field, platform. With Power Apps, MSO, Dynamics etc. This will be a killer form factor.

    It makes my blood boil when I hear the $399 "price" repeated over and over again. Literally NO ONE is going to buy this as an alternative to an iPad or a kindle. Its usefulness is COMPLETELY derived from the keyboard...so the only price that should ever be mentioned is $499, a whopping 20% mark-up. MS is doing themselves no favors with this "sneaky" bait-and-switch, it's not like consumers care about them anymore, so the last thing they should be doing is bait-and-switch maneuvers.

    The keyboard price also applied to iPad if you want it to be more productive. So I don't understand why some people are still complaining. A cheap BT keyboard still works fine.

      Because an iPad is primarily a tablet for most people who buy it. It makes sense for the keyboard to be an accessory. I would wager that 95%+ of the people who buy a Surface intend to use it as a laptop and therefore buy the keyboard cover at the same time. It is fraudulent of Ms to pretend as though the machine only costs $400. It's like a car dealer quoting you a cost, but that cost excludes the tires and the steering wheel.
