Microsoft Surface Go tablet is seen as the latest device from the tech giant, Microsoft. According to the news which was broken on Microsoft’s official Windows blog, it revealed the device in its Surface range of 2-in-1 hybrid systems (Go) will be the cheapest, smallest and lightest surface ever.
The new Surface Go is a perfect device for your daily tasks, providing you laptop performance, tablet portability, and a stunning touchscreen with a Windows 10 S OS (operating system). The Surface Go has a separate signature type cover and Surface Pen (sold separately).
Surface Go is a 10-inch device, with 3:2 PixelSense display and weighs 522 grams, its thickness is measured at a lithe 8.3mm. The price is amazing, expected to retail at $379 for students, teachers, and retail competitively at 380 pounds in the United Kingdom. The price is an issue Apple should be worried about.
Still speaking of the Operation System (OS) of Surface Go, which runs Windows 10 S, but can be switched to a standard version of Windows 10, if desired by the user.
Speaking of the hardware, the Surface Go comes with Intel’s seventh-generation Intel Pentium Gold processor installed, which Microsoft says it has used because it balances power consumption and performance, available on either 64GB storage capacity of 4GB RAM, 128GB storage capacity of 8GB RAM (Both on Intel 4415Y), and a rear-facing 8.0 megapixel HD camera with a built-in front-facing 5.0-megapixel camera.
The Surface Go was also confirmed to support Microsoft’s Surface Pen and delivered 4,096 level of pressure sensitivity and comes with an in-built microSD card slot for expandable storage, equally has its own version of the detachable keyboard from the Surface Pro. It is equally built with both USB-C and Microsoft’s Surface Connector inputs, as well as a headphone jack.
A Windows Hello facial recognition camera is also in-built for unlocking the device.
Based on the announcement of Surface Go, according to chief product officer for Microsoft Panos Panay, said “When we designed this device, we had to ask ourselves what people want and need from a 10” Surface. The answers seem obvious – lightweight, productive, and accessible to more people.”
In my own view from here at michaelisicheiblog.com, the Surface Go tablet seems to be an awesome new product from Microsoft and the price is pretty nice. While on the other hand, Apple does not see this as a good development for Apple’s computing tablet territory, as Microsoft Surface Go continues to dominate over the new iPad and iPad Pro.
Noting the merits and demerits of these devices (Microsoft Surface Go and Apple’s), Apple does not share with other electronic products, except Apple and equally has its storage capacity fixed by default and cannot be increased with the aid of additional memory device. This is why Microsoft Surface Go is seen as the best for the moment coupled with its size. Some other amazing features of Surface Go are the detachable accessories, the mobile mouse with Bluetooth connectivity, precise control and a choice of four colors, the full keyboard features a large trackpad and backlight, and finally, Surface Pen to write and draw naturally, with precise ink on one end and a rubber eraser on the other.
