Microsoft has finally launched a new cheap surface tablet called the Microsoft Surface Go. The tablet is basically a smaller version of its signature surface series of tablets. The Microsoft Surface Go is priced at $399 around ₹27,500 for the 4GB RAM and 64GB SSD variant and $549 around ₹37,800 for the 8GB RAM and 128GB SSD variant.
Microsoft has also launched a bunch of accessories including a Surface Go Type Cover at $99 around ₹6,800, Surface Go Signature Type Cover at $129 around ₹10,900, Surface mobile mouse and Surface Pen at $34.99 around ₹2,400 and $99 around ₹6,800 respectively.
It is now available for preorder in the US and will ship in August. The new Surface tablet comes with a 10-inch touch-screen display with 3:2 aspect ratio. There are bezels all around the display to provide a better grip and a front-facing camera with facial recognition support via Windows Hello.
The Surface Go is powered by an Intel Pentium 4415Y 7th gen dual-core processor coupled with 4GB/8GB RAM and 64GB/128GB of SSD storage. Microsoft claims a battery life of up to 9 hours on a single charge. Currently, only the WiFi versions have been launched and the company will bring the LTE versions later this year.
The Microsoft’s tablet will run on Windows 10 S out of the box and will compete against a bunch of Chromebooks as well as the new iPad. Users can switch to the regular version of the Windows 10 at any time they want. The tablet uses a USB Type – C 3.1 port, which is capable of charging as well as transferring high-speed data.
It also comes with the proprietary Surface connector port for charging and connecting to a desktop dock. While hardware-wise it is at par with the Chromebooks and the standard variant of the iPad, Windows 10 is neither as light as the ChromeOS nor it is as optimized as iOS on iPad.
