Microsoft’s 10-inch Surface Go starts at $399 and ships August 2

The Surface Go has a 10-inch 3:2 (1800 x 1200) PixelDensity multi-touch display, surrounded by thick bezels.

On a portable the port choice is crucial and Microsoft has provided USB-C 3.1 for data, video, and charging; a headphone jack; and a MicroSD card reader - as well as the Surface Connect for charging and docking.

Microsoft has published a cryptic teaser on its official Twitter account which suggests that the company may be unveiling a new Surface device tomorrow. The base model has 4GB of RAM and 128GB of hard drive space, while a more expensive model, starting at $549, will have 8GB of RAM and 256GB of hard drive space.

So there's a 10in IPS screen (1200x1800) and an Intel Pentium 4415Y processor, a 1.6GHz "Gold" chip which sits at the bottom of the firm's 7th-gen Kaby Lake family.

India beats England in 3rd T20, wins series 2-1
England had got off to a sensational start, as openers Jason Roy and Jos Buttler shared a 94-run stand in just seven odd overs. In an entertaining partnership with Rohit, Kohli added 89 runs for the third wicket to take the game away from the home team.


The Surface Go runs Windows 10 S, a version of Windows that will only run apps found in the Microsoft Store - a walled-garden approach much in the same vein as Apple.

It's the price tag that will make it more appealing for many people, shaving several hundred dollars off the price of the latest version of the Surface Pro, which starts at $799.

Sales from Microsoft's Surface line increased 32 percent in its most recent quarter, but the series of tablets and laptops still lag behind market leader Apple's iPad and MacBook series (which has faced its own struggles). Just don't expect to see Microsoft's zany folding dual-screen Surface Andromeda handheld - apparently, that project may be in danger now. There's a USB-C port, so you can use your Android phone's charger to power the PC, though by default it charges using Microsoft's proprietary Surface connector. Surface Go is definitely not part of the company's Windows on ARM efforts.

Like Microsoft's earlier devices, the Surface Go will work with optional keyboards and mouses. The Surface Go has been officially launched with a £379 price tag and Windows 10 S. The new tablets come in multiple configurations, including 64, 128, and 256 gigabyte storage options and 4 or 8 gigabytes of RAM.

Also, both tablets support pen input.

When can you buy Surface Go? In case you wish to though, you can upgrade to the regular version of Windows for free.

The Surface Go should provide plenty of endurance. The device offers a fanless design and a nine-hour battery life. After even just a brief time with the Surface Go, we're plenty optimistic about it.

Surface Go pricing starts at $400, but don't be fooled: Just as with the bigger, more powerful Surface Pro, you're going to want Microsoft's specially-made $99 keyboard cover to get the most out of the Surface Go.
