Microsoft Teases New Surface Device

Microsoft’s $399 Surface Go is announced at last

Microsoft's latest Surface Go follows the design principles of the Surface lineup yet goes easy on the specifications to bring down prices. But it doesn't lack for power, featuring a 7th Generation Intel Pentium Gold Processor 4415Y and a nine-hour battery life.

The Surface Go comes with Windows 10 onboard. Some consumers simply can't afford them.

Meet the Microsoft Surface Go, a teeny-tiny new 1.15-pound laptop/tablet hybrid with a 10-inch screen that can fit in a handbag, fanny pack, or maybe even a particularly deep pocket.

The built-in kickstand (something the iPad lacks) gives you 165 degrees of freedom along with just the right amount of friction.

Serena Williams assesses Wimbledon chances after reaching quarter-finals
It's also the only Grand Slam tournament in the half-century professional era with zero top-10 seeds in the women's final eight. It was Serena's 18th straight win at the All England Club as the 23-time Grand Slam champion reached her 13th quarter-final.

Surface Go will be released August 2, and an LTE version will follow later this year, Microsoft's Chief Product Officer Panos Panay wrote in a blog post. The tablet's Pentium Gold can clock up to 1.60GHz and is based on Intel's Kaby Lake (14nm+) architecture.

Microsoft Corp is going for the low-end of the personal computing market with a smaller, cheaper Surface Go tablet that takes on Apple Inc's cheapest iPads. The USB-C port can be used for charging the tablet as well as connecting other USB-C devices. This will allow the tablet to expand its user base from simply catering to the education sector.

One thing worth noting that doesn't come across in the specs: The Surface Go's glass trackpad is bigger than on the Surface Pro.

It's been three years since Microsoft released the Surface 3.

William, Kate's third child Prince Louis christened
The monarch was due to return to London on Monday before a busy schedule of events including a meeting with U.S. James' Palace, while accompanied by her big brother Prince George and the rest of her family.

The availability of accessories globally is yet to be confirmed, but you'll be able to get a black Surface Go Type Cover for $99 (around £75, AU$130), with red, blue or silver "Signature" Alcantara Type Covers costing $129 (around £100, AU$170).

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). While the keyboard will reportedly increase the price of the Surface Go up by at least $99 (roughly Rs. 6,800), the Pen will add another $99. And for me, whether I'm at home, in the office, or on a plane, putting my Surface Pen on the screen and letting my thoughts flow is a necessary step in my creative process.

By lowering the entry level pricing of the Surface family to $399, this opens the door to more usage scenarios where I higher-powered device is not needed.
