"Microsoft introduces 10" Go tablet to Surface lineup

Microsoft’s $399 Surface Go is announced at last

Microsoft has unveiled a smaller and cheaper version of its Surface tablet that looks set to go head to head with Apple's latest iPad. The laptop-tablet hybrid is extremely light, weighing in at only 1.15 pounds.

The Verge disagrees with that verdict, however, arguing that the Surface Go "isn't really a direct iPad competitor" as the sole goal of Apple's device is to serve as a tablet, while the Go is closer to a full computer system. But, the new "Signature Type Cover, is custom-made just for Surface Go integrating design features that give the user the best typing experience possible, with an ergonomic key pitch and exceptional key travel".

The Surface Go is powered by an Intel Pentium Gold processor and has an SDXC port as well.

It's believed that the base $399 Surface Go will also start with a configuration of4GB RAM and 64 GB storage, with the top-level Surface Go hitting 8GB RAM and 256GB storage.

And so far as ports are concerned, the Surface Go comes with the same Surface Connector port which again is typical of all Surface Pro devices.

Rumours around a new Microsoft Surface device, specifically a budget Surface tablet, have been floating around for a few months. As of now, there is no information on the availability of the Surface Go in India.

The Surface Go is equipped with a custom built high resolution PixelSense display with an aspect ratio of 3:2 that has support for Microsoft's Surface Pen with 4096 different levels of pressure sensitivity, low pen parallax, low latency, and extremely precise for note taking as well as drawing or computer aided graphics purposes.

For security, the laptop comes with TPM 2.0 for Enterprise security and also has Windows Hello face authentication camera on the front which uses a 5 MP unit.

The ports on the Surface Go are a Surface Connect port for charging and docking the device, a USB Type-C 3.1 port for data, video as well as charging, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a micro SD card slot for memory expansion.

The Surface Go has a 10-inch screen, about the same size as the entry-level iPad. An LTE-enabled model will then follow later in the year. Prices range from $399 to more than $549.

Three optional accessories are available for the Surface Go, yet are all sold separately: the Signature Type Cover (from $99), Surface Pen (another $99) and Surface Mobile Mouse ($35).
