Unnamed sources have revealed that the Surface tablet will initially be Wi-fi only and they won’t posses a mobile network connection, as reported by Bloomberg.
This is a disastrous decision from Microsoft as they are yet to establish themselves in the tablet market.
Their main competition is with the iPad which supports mobile network connection. Other cheaper Android tablets also posses mobile network connection. This could be a major setback for the users who are always on move and don’t have access to Wi-fi all the time.
Since mobile networks are not supported, their won’t be any calling feature either.
If you remember, Surface will be running Microsoft’s next-generation Windows operating system and will mark the company’s first foray into the ever-expanding tablet market.
Though the software giant has unveiled Surface, it has yet to release all the details on the specifications.
