Microsoft launches Surface Go Tablet starting at $399

Microsoft opens flagship Surface store in Taipei Microsoft’s $399 Surface Go is announced at last

Microsoft has just announced the Surface Go tablet for $399 which is going to compete against the entry level Apple iPad, which now retails for $329.

The Surface Go feels wonderfully light and pretty solid for something so cheap, and the 10-inch display is great. Microsoft has also packed a USB Type-C 3.1 port that can charge the tablet or transfer data to external devices.

As how Nintendo changed the console scene with its portable, full-power Switch, Microsoft has internally pined for one of its big back-burner projects to be an industry game-changer.

The entry level model has 64gb of flash storage as well as 4GB of ram, but there will be a more expensive model that has 8gb of ram as well as 128gb of SSD storage. Microsoft has also confirmed that a LTE model will be coming later this year.

562g body with USB-C and microSD. This is a 10-inch tablet with optional keyboard cover and stylus and it costs from $399. Other countries will be able to preorder a bit later: Japan on July 11, Singapore and Korea on August 2, China on August 8, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Oman, Kuwait, and Bahrain on September 12, and finally in India on October 2. Microsoft's proprietary Surface Connector is still there is well, which allows users to connect to a desktop dock, along with charging the tablet. Specifically, with firstline workers or the education segment, this makes it easier to afford these devices but know that they do not come with a Type cover or a pen.

The price for the actual Surface Go starts from $399 for the 4/64 GB version and goes to $549 for the 8/128 GB variant. Steve Troughton-Smith tweeted a couple of weeks ago that the device will be called Surface Go, so that line could very well be another hint.

Microsoft on Tuesday talked up the "built-in kickstand with full friction hinge that extends to 165 degrees helps you stay in your flow from tablet to studio mode".

The device runs Windows 10 in S mode but can be upgraded to Windows 10 Home for those of you who want apps from sources beyond the Windows Store. There will be a black polyurethane Type Cover and a Signature Type Cover that comes in Alcantara, the suede-like material Microsoft has used for its keyboards and on the Surface Laptop in the past. Lastly, Microsoft is also selling a Surface Mobile Mouse for $35. Thankfully, Microsoft today announces a new computer that puts Surface in reach of more people.
