Microsoft launches smaller, cheaper Surface Go to rival the iPad

Microsoft Surface affordable tablet passes the FCC Microsoft opens flagship Surface store in Taipei
Kayla Schwartz | 10 July, 2018, 15:25

Interestingly, the Microsoft Surface Go comes with a USB Type-C port alongside a Surface Connect port, a microSDXC card reader and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

As rumoured, Microsoft has announce a new and cheaper Surface tablet.

Available in 4GB RAM / 64GB storage, 8/128, 8/128 LTE and 8/256 LTE SKUs, but I don't think all of them will come out in one go.

Inside, we have the Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y processor which Microsoft says is 30% faster than the quad-core Atom CPU found inside of the Surface 3. Unfortunately, as with the more powerful Surface Pro tablets, a keyboard is not included, making the initial price a bit misleading. The part doubtless helps to keep the Surface Go's price low, but won't deliver stellar performance. A specially designed Surface Go Signature Type Cover is said to offer ergonomic key pitch and exceptional key travel - alongside a Windows Precision Trackpad that supports five-point multi-finger gestures. However, it will also come in a model with 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD. Just don't expect to see Microsoft's zany folding dual-screen Surface Andromeda handheld - apparently, that project may be in danger now. The device will reportedly retail for $400, include a USB-C port, and be 20 percent lighter than the current Surface Pro models, which now start at $799.

When will the Surface Go be on sale? While there are a few countries where it will arrive later this year, there is no clarity on whether the Surface Go will make it to India.

Johnny Depp sued for allegedly attacking crew member on film set
Brooks says the scene wasn't working well, and he informed the director they could only have one more shot at finishing it. Brooks claims Depp hired 2 of his friends for a scene in downtown L.A. on April 13, 2017.

First, as a tablet, the Surface Go will square off against Apple's productivity-focused iPad Pro, which starts at $649 for a 10.5-inch model. It has a kickstand, metal-construction, support for inking, and comes with Windows 10 S and works with existing Surface accessories. Your limits are, of course, that Intel Pentium Gold processor and 4 GB RAM. Comparatively, that difference in price amounts to half as much starting storage and memory, and neither a USB-C port nor microSD slot.

To appreciate the fighting strength of the Surface Go, you'll have to consider the whole package and where it stands against the competition.

The lightweight, 1.15-pound Surface Go - about twice as big as many smartphones - is created to be portable, but Microsoft has also developed accessories to give it more of a laptop feel.

The pre-orders of Surface Go will begin on July 10 and it will start shipping from the next month. Users can switch to regular Windows 10 Home, which doesn't have that limit, for free. But while the Surface Go is indeed pocketable, it only has one screen, meaning that this ain't it. You can pre-order starting tomorrow.
