Microsoft's Entry Level Tablet Arrives in August for $399 — Surface Go

View Comments			FacebookTwitterGooglePinterestLinkedInReddit

Finally, we should note that the Surface Go is not now offered with 4G LTE support and you can only get a Wi-Fi one, while iPads are offered in both styles. The new 10-inch tablet is available now for pre-order in the USA and several other countries and is priced competitively to the iPad Mini, with a $399 price tag for the 64-GB storage option, and $549 for a 128-GB version. However, it will also come in a model with 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD.

All models are expected to use a 10-inch display with 1,800 x 1,200 pixels. However, Apple too is guilty of selling its iPads without keyboard covers and styluses. You'll just have to keep your performance expectations in check. But there are better, thinner, and lighter 2-in-1 tablets with Intel Core m3 processors at least. Users can switch to regular Windows 10 Home, which doesn't have that limit, for free.

Weighing just over 520g and with a 8.3mm body, it's a damn compact 10-inch device. Microsoft claims to have redesigned the keyboard and increased the trackpad's size with it. Gone are the stark, angled edges of the Surface Pro in lieu of rounder, softer edges that help give this version of the Surface its own identity through such a relatively small adjustment.

All signs are pointing to the impending release of a new, entry-level Surface tablet.

As you may recall, Bloomberg broke the news about a coming $400 Surface tablet in May. These go for $129 (around £100, AU$170), while a basic nylon version will sell for $99 (around £75, AU$130).

The most interesting thing about this new portable device is the fact that it comes with a USB-C port. Other rumors include the loss of the proprietary Surface connector, in favor of USB-C and "rounded edges".

As aides prepared for a prime time announcement Monday, Trump tweeted: "I have long heard that the most important decision a U.S. Kyl, a former member of Republican leadership, served on the Senate Judiciary Committee before retiring in 2013.

Featuring a 10-inch PixelSense display with a native resolution of 1800 x 1200, 3:2 aspect ratio, and support for the optional Surface Pen, the general design of Surface Go is not far off from the existing Surface Pro. The 4 GB and 6 GB RAM variant of the Surface Go respectively features 64 GB and 128 GB of storage. Behind the Surface's sharp display, this processor seemed to handle lots of hard, intense tasks easily. It goes on sale August 2 with Wi-Fi connectivity.

The Surface Go should provide plenty of endurance. Some consumers simply can't afford them.

Microsoft may be out of the smartphone game but is still doing tablets if only with the desktop Windows OS. Of course, you now can't go back on that decision, so choose wisely. For commercial-channel buyers, you will have the option to have this device shipped with Windows 10 Pro. Of course, we'll be the final judge of that.

In the future, versions of Surface Go with integrated LTE and 256GB SSDs will be added to the line-up.

Microsoft has just turned the heat up on the mid-range tablet market with the announcement of their new Surface Go, a successor to the Surface 3 that costs just $399. It is in stark contrast with its strategy for the Surface Laptop and the other ill-fated Windows 10 S edition which had "education" all over it.

Going by the price of current Surface devices, it's unlikely we'll see a top-end configuration of the Surface Go hit the Surface Pro's £749 starting point.
