Microsoft reveals the $399 Surface Go

Microsoft opens flagship Surface store in Taipei Microsoft’s $399 Surface Go is announced at last
Emmett Howard | 10 July, 2018, 13:10

With a touch-sensitive screen, the Surface Pro has a 3: 2 aspect ratio and a resolution of 1800x1200 pixels.

There's also a new Surface Mobile Mouse for $34.99 (around £30, AU$45), which will be available in the same red, blue, or silver color options as the Signature Type Covers and the existing Surface Pen.

What do you think about the Surface Go? The Type Cover adds another 0.5 pounds to the Go's weight, but the combined system still feels light and easy to hold.

That something? It's nearly certainly Surface Go, the $400 low-end Surface tablet that we've been talking about for months. This means it'll be more than good enough for browsing the web, watching Netflix, and putting together a PowerPoint presentation.

The budget Surface device is said to be equipped with either 4GB or 8GB of RAM, and will be available with up to 128GB of internal storage. The Surface Go clocks off after nine - and that's the always-optimistic claim in the marketing blurb. There's no word on the Surface Go's availability in India.

The Surface is bundled with their signature built-in kickstand with unlimited positions, a front-facing camera with facial recognition login, and Microsoft's proprietary Surface Connector port for charging and connecting to a desktop dock.

562g body with USB-C and microSD.

The USB-C port can be used for plugging in monitors and other accessories, as well as for charging the Surface Go itself in a pinch.

It is the thinnest and sleekest Surface model launched till date with the width of just 8.3 mm. It does have a headphone jack, though.

Microsoft unveiled the new Surface Go tablet Monday, which is aimed at the education market as well as workers on the go. The Surface Go will make its way to India, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Oman, Kuwait and Bahrain later this year. Users will also be glad to know that there's a Surface Pen ready too. That's especially clutch in both schools and corporations, both of which often rely on specialized software.

Again, the Surface Go doesn't come with a keyboard.

And of course, it doesn't hurt to have a lower entry point for the Surface product lineup. However, it is not quite as powerful as the Surface Pro in terms of specifications and features.

As mentioned, the Surface Go follows Microsoft's Surface design and it appears to be a smaller version of the Surface Pro that was introduced in 2014 with the Surface Pro 3. Microsoft promises the Surface Go can handle productivity apps like Office and casual apps like Spotify and Netflix. This is a 10-inch tablet with optional keyboard cover and stylus and it costs from $399.

Well, it's certainly possible that Andromeda is still in the works.

After all, there are other Windows-based iPad competitors out there from various PC partners.
