Microsoft Unveils $399 Surface Go Tablet Running Windows 10S

In case you wish to though, you can upgrade to the regular version of Windows for free.

I am somewhat surprised that Microsoft isn't launching the Surface Gos preloaded with Microsoft 365 - its bundle of Windows 10, Office 365 and Intune mobile-device-management service. The basics: it's a 10-incher with an 1800 x 1200 pixel display, it weighs half a kilo (1.15 lbs), and starts at $400 - unfortunately sans the keyboard, as usual.

The sliver of a document provided by Reddit user UniversalACAdapter doesn't provide any details about the device itself, other than the fact that it will feature a Type Cover (which are portable keyboards for the Surface line). Surface Go is small and mighty, giving you the performance you need to be productive.

This will be the first of Microsoft's Surface tablets with USB Type-C. Just don't expect to see Microsoft's zany folding dual-screen Surface Andromeda handheld - apparently, that project may be in danger now. This means it'll be more than good enough for browsing the web, watching Netflix, and putting together a PowerPoint presentation.

Microsoft further claims that the Surface Go gets 9 hours of battery life, which comes with the caveat that this was tested by playing a video file that was stored on the device. Microsoft has also added SD Card support for expansion which supports cards up to 1 TB. The device is equipped with a Surface Connector for connecting a charger as well as linking it to a desktop dock.

With the inclusion of an integrated kickstand for the surface and with the well thought out keyboard and mouse experience, the Surface is a much better productivity machine, a much more convenient laptop replacement than an iPad. It does have a headphone jack, though. The Surface Go runs Windows 10 S, a version of Windows that will only support apps that are available in the Windows app store. An LTE cellular data version will be released later this year, the company said.

Surface Go offers a stunning, custom-built high-resolution PixelSense Display that supports Surface Pen with 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity, low pen parallax, low latency, and precision for accurate note taking, drawing and computer-aided design.

The Surface Go has clearly been designed with students in mind, with the portrait mode able to render the page to the scale of school textbooks.

The Microsoft Surface Go can be used as a lightweight tablet, too.
