Microsoft launches smaller, cheaper Surface Go Tablet

Microsoft opens flagship Surface store in Taipei

This will be the first of Microsoft's Surface tablets with USB Type-C. The person, whose comments were earlier reported on by TechRadar, added that the tablet would ship with a 10-inch screen and have an 1,800-by-1,200-pixel resolution.

It's powered by an Intel Pentium Gold processor (yeah, they still make Pentiums), which should be plenty good enough for everyday computing - particularly considering that it runs Windows 10 Home in S mode.

Pricing in the U.S.is $399 for 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, or $549 for 8GB RAM and 128GB storage.

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.

Serena Williams rallies to reach Wimbledon semifinals
And when Williams took the court for the second set, she did indeed look calm and composed - and roared back with a vengeance. Williams is seeded 25th after returning from having a baby, but is looking like her usual dominant self on the grass courts.

"The Surface Go is an excellent proposition". The Surface Go has an "all-day" nine-hour battery life, as opposed to the Surface Pro's promised 13.5 hours.

A Change.org petition sponsored by one Zachary Hinski is encouraging anyone who would care a shred about a would-be Windows phone-laptop hybrid to "Show Microsoft the demand for the Surface Phone or Andromeda!"

While questions remain around customer demand for a lower-power Windows machine from Microsoft, experts were broadly positive about the introduction of a cheaper Surface device, saying that it made Microsoft's offerings more competitive with Apple's iPad and Google's Chromebooks, which have found success in the education market.

Microsoft is selling the Surface Go at the relatively approachable starting price of $399 (£379, about AU$539).

Giuliani says he's not anxious about Manafort or Cohen flipping
Wehle told MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle on Monday that it would be "impossible" for Mueller to agree to Giuliani's demands. None", Giuliani said . "As long as he tells the truth, we're home free".

It is available for pre-order from July 10 and will start shipping in August. LTE variants of the Surface Go should come to the market at a later date.

The device will support split-screen and multi-tasking modes available in Windows 10. The Type Cover's keys, similar in size to shrunken HP Mini netbooks of a decade ago, were comfortable and could be typed on with big adult fingers.

You can also kit out the Surface Go with lots of quite pricey accessories.

Other specs and features include a built-in kickstand (that extends to 165 degrees), a Windows Hello camera, a Surface Connect port (for charging and docking), a USB-C 3.1 port (for data, video, and charging), a headphone jack, and a MicroSD card reader (for storage expansion). However, a free upgrade to a standard Windows 10 installation is also available, should that be required. In that sense, the announcement of the slightly smaller Surface Go is just picking up where the Surface 3 left off.

Sweet 16! Serena surges into Wimbledon third round
Some forms of address are permanent at the All England Club, which operates as if there's a man in front of many great women. She told BBC Sport: "It is just about winning the match, if you are at your best or not doesn't matter as long as you win".

Bloomberg News reported on Microsoft's new tablet line in May. But while the Surface Go is indeed pocketable, it only has one screen, meaning that this ain't it.
