Surface 2 dilemma: Buy or wait till 2014?

I live in a country where Surfaces are ridiculously expensive (over $1000 for the base model, without the keyboard). However, with family coming home for Christmas, I have the opportunity to have one brought back for me. I could then purchase a wireless hub to pair with the tablet for access to internet on the go.

BUT.

I was waiting to get the announced Surface 2 with LTE. That doesn't arrive till sometime in early 2013 (MS's Q3 I believe), and it could be another 2 - 3 months after that before I could receive it, but it does have the added advantage of not carrying another device that could easily be lost.

So, should I wait or pull the trigger and get it now?
