Surface 2 LTE?
With the talk about smaller Surface units on the horizon, the other news surrounded a Surface 2 LTE model from Microsoft. Panos Panay told the crowd and others that a Surface 2 LTE would be coming out next year on AT&T and other partners in Europe, but said that Microsoft is not looking at building a Surface Pro 2 with LTE.
Lots Of Stuff and Sizes
The comments by Panos Panay hinted that aspect ratios and sizes would be in the Surface line in the future. A possible 7.5-inch display has been rumored with a 4:3 ratio, and that is what is expected from future Surface Mini users.
Panos Panay In Charge
With all the talk about the upcoming Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 units coming out in the next month, Microsoft’s Panos Panay is the man in charge. He is commanding his spot in the Microsoft chain of command with the Surface units and making the next moves for the company that will leave it competing against Apple and Google in the tablet space. With him, he will need to build competitively priced units with powerful features, and get them in the hands of users right away.
These comments from Panos Panay of Microsoft on Tuesday were interesting for Microsoft followers.
