Microsoft Surface Go gets LTE Advanced option

Microsoft Surface Go gets LTE Advanced option

Surface Go LTE is built around Intel's 8th Gen Intel Core processor on the i5 configuration along with 4GB/8GB RAM and storage variants of 64GB/128GB and 256GB.

The Surface Go may not be as glamorous as its bigger siblings, including the Surface Pro and Surface Book, given that it's Microsoft's smallest Surface to date.

Nonetheless, the tablet offers impressive battery life, despite having a 1800 x 1200 10-inch PixelSense display.

Also: Why did Microsoft build the Surface Go?

All the above prices are for the Surface tablet on its own, and many will want to bundle it in with the Type Cover (£99 / $130 [or $160 in Alcantra fabric]), and Surface Pen (£99 / $99). Happily that's changing now. While wifi hotspots can be found all over the U.S. nowadays, there are still times when you may need to get some work done while you're, say, taking an Uber to the other side of the city.

The November 20 launch date applies to the United States and Canada, with availability spreading to other markets just two days later. That will double the storage, taking it to 256 GB of flash, and then bump up the price to $829. After that, from November 22 there'll be preorders opened up for 21 further markets.

Surface Go with LTE Advanced, as the coming devices will be branded, will be available in both consumer and commercial configurations, just like Microsoft's recently introduced Surface Laptop 2 and Surface Pro 6.
