The Morning After: Microsoft's smaller Surface

The Morning After: Microsoft's smaller Surface

Microsoft has today announced The Surface GO which is essentially a 10-inch tablet that can be had for only $599.

For normal home consumers, Surface Go will ship with the much-despised "S Mode" of Windows 10 Home, but you can turn off that mode at no cost. As for ports, you'll find Microsoft's proprietary Surface Connector, a USB-C 3.1 port, a 3.5mm headphone jack and a microSD slot. It's the first portable Surface product to have one. The company tweeted out the leading question "Where will Surface go next?" along with an image of the full lineup - the Pro, Laptop, Book 2 and swiveling all-in-one Studio. Microsoft promises the Surface Go can handle productivity apps like Office and casual apps like Spotify and Netflix.

Low (er) cost 399 bucks Microsoft Surface tablet to be released July, Friday the 13th - 07/09/2018 05:50 PMAah Microsoft, you never had good fortune with the Surface, and now they will release a "budget" version this Friday, the 13th. However, it will also come in a model with 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD. That is likely one reason the Surface Go is Intel-, not ARM-based for now, anyway.

England main beneficiaries of set-piece goal glut
Meanwhile, Dele Alli , who scored England's second goal, said it was a great team performance. He also converted a penalty in normal time in the last-16 win over Colombia .

Because the Surface Go runs a full version of Windows 10, you can run most every piece of Windows software, past or present.

Like Microsoft's earlier devices, the Surface Go will work with optional keyboards and mouses. Your limits are, of course, that Intel Pentium Gold processor and 4 GB RAM.

According to the information that surfaced on Reddit, the new tablet will be available in multiple versions that start at US$399 and can hit US$829, without even counting the accessories. The Type Cover's keys, similar in size to shrunken HP Mini netbooks of a decade ago, were comfortable and could be typed on with big adult fingers.

How Chelsea star Willian could line up in Jose Mourinho's XI
If Willian does come to Manchester, the club will definitely be boosted with the experience he has in the Premier League. The 29-year-old further added that he is only focussed on playing for Brazil.

Thanks to the Go's downsized 10in 1800x1200 screen, which Microsoft claims has been created to "render the page to the scale of most school textbooks", the Surface Go tips the scales at just 1.15 pounds and measure in at a positively-skinny 8.3mm.

Battery life is rated at 9 hours, which is a bit short compared to the marathon batteries in more recent Surface devices, but we'll have to see how that holds up in real world use. Bloomberg's sources say the planned device is a 10-inch tablet with a starting price around $400, iPad-like rounded corners, and a USB Type-C port among its inputs.

Again, the Surface Go doesn't come with a keyboard. Schools purchasing in the commercial channel will have the choice between Windows 10 Home in S Mode or Windows 10 Pro. It'll start shipping on 2 August.
