A couple of months back we reported that Microsoft might be working on a low-cost Surface tablet. The company yesterday teased a new product which finally made its way today. Announced by Surface Chief Product Officer, Panos Panay, Surface Go is an affordable tablet aimed at Schools and educators. The tablet is priced at $399 and it offers a 10” display with 3:2 aspect ratio. Under the hood is a 7th Generation Intel Pentium Gold Processor 4415Y with 4 GB and 8 GB RAM options. The device offers a fanless design and a nine-hour battery life. Microsoft has also added USB Type-C for connectivity. Surface Go comes with 64GB eMMC and 128GB or 256GB SSD storage options. Microsoft has also added SD Card support for expansion which supports cards up to 1 TB. Other specs include a 5MP front-facing camera with Windows Hello and an 8MP rear auto-focus camera. Surface Go will support Dolby Audio Premium as well as the Surface Pen. Microsoft hasn’t commented on the Surface Dial support though. Surface Go will be available for pre-order starting tomorrow in 35 countries. The device will be shipped starting August 2. Microsoft has also confirmed that an LTE model will be coming later this year. The Microsoft Surface Go will cost customers $399 excluding Keyboard which will be priced at $99 or $129 (Alcantara). Overall, Surface Go looks solid on paper and offers decent specs for an affordable tablet. We will be able to comment more on the device once it hits the shelves on August 2.
