    Honestly cellular connectivity isn’t a huge concern to me. I refuse to give the carriers even MORE money for another device, I’m quite happy tethering with my phone.

      I agree, really there is no need for a cellular tablet, as almost everyone has a smartphone that they are able to use to create a wifi hotspot, or use it for tethering.

      I wouldn’t mind a cellular tablet if i could pay a nominal fee (like $5 a month or even free) and use the cellular data from my phone. I mean this because i have a non LTE device and got an iPad. If i could of paid the extra $5 a month and have my 6 gig plan shared with the tablet i would of gotten the LTE version instead of wifi only.

      I know i can tether but that burns battery life like no tomorrow and i would rather have my phone have a charge then my tablet.

    @2CF – seriously do u sit all day infront of the computer and wait for MS to post an article so you can post “RIP RIM”? You seriously need to start going out and get a life…

    I find Tethering to be a PITA, it drains your Super Phone’s battery. I’m paying $2 month for Data Share and with a 6GB plan, it’s more than enough.

    Who would buy this considering it will cost an ARM and A LEG.

    The MSs Windows TAB is already pricey at $600 with the keyboard. This one here with the Phone will be even MORE then that.

    No Thanks. Your better off buying a LAPTOP for this kind of MONEY. Better yet , get a Nexus 10 for much less.

    I was pretty skeptical of cellular in tablets, but after some thought, I think it’s more convenient than having to switch on tethering. Can’t wait to see Nokia’s tablet, I hope they go as far as adding a proper digitizer (like the Nexus 10 and Galaxy Note).

    You guys touched note there with the camera, true, when i hear nokia, I think” I wonder what kind of camera they are going to put on this!”

    The thing nobody is talking about is PRICE $$$

    As I said , at $600 for a Surface with NO Cell I can’t imaging how this will be any cheaper. More like $700

    I’m sorry but this is just way to much. By your self a LAPTOP and ger seriously MORE bang for your Money. A lot more.

    Or prucahse an Nexus 10 for $399 and your still way better off.
