4G Microsoft Surface RT rumoured to be coming – sports Qualcomm chip

The only tablet to allow users to enjoy more from 4G LTE data is the iPad 4G (see more on Apple iPad 4G here). A new version of the Microsoft Surface RT is said to be the second. This new version of the Redmond’s firm’s tablet will sport a Qualcomm chip, allowing for a 4G connection (see related news here).303387-microsoft-surface-with-windows-rt

Bloomberg (see site here) says, “Microsoft Corp. (MSFT), seeking to break into the market for tablet computers, will update its Surface RT using chips from Qualcomm Inc. (QCOM), people with knowledge of the company’s plans said.

“Some new versions of Surface will be based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processors, which can deliver fast wireless data connections, said the people, who asked not to be identified because Microsoft has yet to announce new models. Nvidia Corp. (NVDA), whose Tegra chip is used in the current Surface RT, will continue as a supplier for some versions, one person said.”
