Microsoft teases new Surface for tomorrow, July 10

Microsoft opens flagship Surface store in Taipei Microsoft’s $399 Surface Go is announced at last

When faced with this question, most people will have to make the choice between the new Surface Go and the other big name in tablets: the Apple iPad.

Given that the Surface Pro display puts up 293 pixels per inch (ppi), and the Surface Go just 217 ppi (compared to the new iPad's 264 ppi), we're pleasantly surprised that the display left us with such an impression. Power-wise, Surface Go has a dual-core, four-thread Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y processor. Its entry-level model has 4GB RAM and 64GB of eMMC storage.

Today, the Redmond, Wash. -based company continued its streak of education announcements with the launch of the Surface Go, a version of the hybrid tablet that Microsoft aims to sell to schools.

Availability: Surface Go with Wi-Fi will be available for pre-order tomorrow, July 10 in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Poland, Italy, Portugal, and Spain.

Enter the new Surface Go. Microsoft says the 27-watt-hour battery is rated for up to 9 hours of battery life. Still, that's $100 less than the Surface 3 started at, making it the cheapest of Microsoft'sdevices in this lineup yet. Some of the features, borrowed from the more expensive Surfaces are unique though, and perhaps are the strongest way to convince students around the world that they don't need the cheapest or most common offerings from Google or Apple, but the simultaneously specialised and versatile Surface Go.

Available for pre-order starting today - although the listing isn't now live on the Microsoft Store at time of writing - the Surface Go will be available for purchase from 2 August.

The source told Reuters that Amy Coney Barrett of IN , a Trump-appointed judge on the Chicago-based 7th U.S. The president is set to announce his Supreme Court nominee on Monday night.

We think that the Surface Go may be one of the most interesting releases this year and can not wait to see how well it stacks up to the entry-level 9.7-inch iPad.

True to Microsoft's roots, the company said the lightweight Go would also suit the needs of businesses, which have been early adopters of Microsoft hardware including the Surface line and its Hololens augmented reality glasses prototype. If you're on a limited budget and trying to buy both a tablet and a Windows laptop, then the device just about gets you there for a reasonable price.

The Xinyi District (信義區) store reflects Microsoft's targeting of the Taiwan market and is set to cater to Taiwanese consumers according to Chang Chia-hao (張家豪), a Senior Product Marketing Associate. The product will be available on August 2nd with a LTE version being available later this year.

Even in such a diminutive state, Microsoft managed to cram a USB-C 3.1 port and microSD card reader into the Surface Go, neither of which the latest iPad has. We've seen the Surface Go render and manipulate 3D imagery in a biology studies app with nary a stutter.

On the flipside, a Windows-powered tablet with a USB-C port and a micro SD expansion slot will be attractive to certain users (and it's likely that these are the sorts of users who will be better placed to navigate the complexity caused by the different RAM and Windows 10 options).
