Late last night, Microsoft unexpectedly took the wraps off their 10-inch Surface Go tablets a day early via a blog post by Surface chief Panos Panay. Now that the dust has somewhat settled, you can tune in below on Facebook Live at 6 AM PT to see Panay officially introduce the newest device to the Microsoft Surface family in his more traditional fashion.
As a recap, the Surface Go is coming out on August 2nd for a starting price of $399. It features a 10-inch display at 1800 x 1200 resolution with the traditional 3:2 aspect ratio. The fanless devices are also powered by Intel’s Pentium Gold 4415Y processor but come with Windows 10 Home in S mode pre-installed. Commercial Surface Go units will come with Windows 10 Pro, and other users can switch to Windows 10 Home for free.
An LTE variant of the Surface Go is planned and will be arriving later this year. All models come with a USB C connector, a microSD Card slot, a Surface connect port and a headphone jack. Microsoft’s signature Surface kickstand is there too, and it now extends up to 165 degrees.
You can expect Panos Panay to dive deeper into these specs, talk more about the variants of the Surface Go, and also showcase the new Surface Go Type Cover and accessories. You also might hear more about how to pre-order and see some more situations where the Surface Go is best used in.
