Microsoft teases a Surface hardware announcement for tomorrow

  • Microsoft Surface flagship in Taipei

Microsoft once had a similar entry level 10-inch tablet, the Surface 3, but the new one is more powerful and cheaper (the Surface 3 launched at $499).

"Weighing in at 1.15 pounds and only 8.3 mm thick, the Surface Go sports a 10" touch screen with a 3:2 aspect ratio.

Ports include USB Type-C, a headphone jack and Microsoft's Surface Connect port for plugging in a docking station. The base model ships with 4GB RAM and 64GB of eMMC flash storage, while the top-end model comes with 8GB RAM and 128GB of SSD storage. The company also may be adding an 8GB RAM/256GB SSD storage version (with and without LTE, ) to its Surface Go line-up.

It's been rumored for a long time now that Microsoft was working on a tinier Surface: Microsoft released the 10.8-inch Surface 3 back in 2015, but there hasn't been anything even sort of like it since.

The pre-orders of Surface Go will begin on July 10 and it will start shipping from the next month. Microsoft's custom Surface Connector is still there, which essentially allows users to connect to a desktop dock of the device, along with charging the hybrid computer. That person claims that the new Surface will have a 10-inch display (which explains the need for a new Type Cover, as existing ones wouldn't fit it) outputting at 1800 x 1200 resolution.

So Microsoft Malaysia has just announced Surface Go's availability for Malaysia on 2 August 2018, there's no local price revealed yet but in the United States of America the manufacturer's suggested retail price is just $399.

We're also curious if the tablet will finally come with its own detachable keyboard cover (aka "Type Cover") since those have generally been sold separately and can drastically bump up the total price you'll pay. It's so easy to carry Surface Go with me so I can capture those moments, instantly. Back in May, talk surfaced () of a new, low-priced entry, aimed at competing more directly with the iPad. Note that the system runs Windows 10 in S Mode out of the box, which promises speedier performance and better security.

If you're looking for speed, the Surface Go isn't for you. The product will be available on August 2nd with a LTE version being available later this year.

Microsoft is also announcing a new travel mouse which pairs via Bluetooth and comes in platinum, burgundy and cobalt blue.

What do you think about the Surface Go tablet? The keen eyes of Sean Hollister at CNET suggest we'll find out tomorrow morning at 6 AM Pacific.
