When it comes to ports, the tablet comes with a Surface Connect port for charging and docking, a USB-C port for connecting USB devices, a headphone jack, and a MicroSD card reader.
At first the Surface Go will only be available in a Wi-Fi only model with an LTE version coming later in 2018.
Note that the system runs Windows 10 in S Mode out of the box, which promises speedier performance and better security.
The price for the actual Surface Go starts from $399 for the 4/64 GB version and goes to $549 for the 8/128 GB variant. Microsoft promises the Surface Go can handle productivity apps like Office and casual apps like Spotify and Netflix. Pony up an extra $150 and all that doubles - you get 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage. Check. Touch, Surface Pen, and Surface Dock support?
The Windows-maker is sticking with the proprietary Surface connector, but Surface Go has USB-C as well. That is likely one reason the Surface Go is Intel-, not ARM-based for now, anyway.
The Surface Go has clearly been designed with students in mind, with the portrait mode able to render the page to the scale of school textbooks.
The iPad starts at $329, but when you add an Apple Pencil and Logitech keyboard, the total zooms up to $527.95.
There is also a 5MP selfie camera in front alongside a Windows Hello face sign-in camera so you can log in with facial recognition. We last reported the devices cleared the FCC, and have also noted that they could be powered by Intel's low-priced Pentium processor. Microsoft says its hardware choices deliver a battery life of up to 9 hours.
Weighing just over 520g and with a 8.3mm body, it's a damn compact 10-inch device.
The long-rumoured device, which will be available to pre-order from Tuesday from $399 (around £300), is Redmond's "smallest and lightest" Surface tablet yet. This suggests that we're in for a new Surface announcement tomorrow. However, users can upgrade to a full version of Windows 10 for free. But while the Surface Go is indeed pocketable, it only has one screen, meaning that this ain't it.
The Surface Go's keyboard seen in the photos will be sold separately for $99 or $129 for the Signature Type Cover, which uses a scissor key mechanism and has 1mm of key travel.
