Microsoft Starts Shipping of Surface Go in India

"In Surface Go, you have latest Windows 10 and a suite of Microsoft apps, for a pure laptop experience on the go. No other tablet or a 2-in-1 can make your work life easier than this device," Mohapatra told IANS at the time of the launch

Surface Go, Microsoft’s smallest and most affordable Surface device yet, started shipping in India on Monday exclusively through Flipkart at a starting price of Rs 38,599.

Aimed at taking on Apple iPad Pro and Samsung Galaxy Tab S4, the Surface Go is the lightest Surface device yet, weighing just 522g.

The 10-inch, two-in-one device with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage will cost Rs 38,599 while the 8GB RAM and 128GB variant can be purchased for Rs 50,999.

Microsoft launched the Surface Go globally earlier this year.

The device comes with the Surface Pen — with 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity and a 3:2 high-resolution “PixelSense” custom calibrated display.
