    I recently got an inexpensive 10.1 inch Windows 8 tablet for the learning experience. It connects to the internet via wifi only and I find that very limiting.
    I've googled windows 8.1 tablet wih data - using different parameters, but can't find much out there.
    Do any of you have data capable Windows tablets? Please reply with the brand, model and cost. I know I could get a hotspot device but don't plan on using that tablet away from home enough to warrant a 2 year commitment to get one.
    Any insight will be appreciated!!!

    I don't think you're going to find too many tablets that offer cellular, other then the iPad.

    Wouldn't bother looking at any cheap Windows tablets for cellular connectivity options.

    Business focussed tablets seem to have it:
    e.g. ThinkPad 10, Dell Venue 11 Pro LTE

    Also, some Windows RT tablets seem to have it:
    e.g. Surface 2, Lumia 2520
