Microsoft has announced a smaller, lighter, and more affordable Surface device called the 'Surface Go'.

The power and connectivity in a device this small gives you the style and productivity Surface is known for in a more convenient package. At just 1.15 pounds and 8.3 mm thin, Surface Go packs portable performance into a 10” device. Starting at $399 MSRP, it represents a new entry point for the Surface family, while keeping the premium qualities that have come to define it.

The Surface Go features a high resolution PixelSense Display that supports a Surface Pen with 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity, low pen parallax, and low latency. Microsoft says the display was designed to render the page of a school textbook to scale in portrait mode. In landscape mode, you can pages side by side.

The device is powered by a 7th Gen Intel Pentium Gold Processor 4415Y, in a fanless design, offering up to 9 hours of battery life. A new Surface Go Signature Type Cover offers ergonomic key pitch and exceptional key travel. It also has a Windows Precision Trackpad that supports five-point multi-finger gestures and can connect to the new Surface Mobile Mouse. A built-in kickstand with full friction hinge extends to 165 degrees and a Windows Hello camera allows for quick, secure sign-in using face recognition.

Surface Go with Wi-Fi will be available for pre-order tomorrow, July 10 in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Poland, Italy, Portugal, and Spain. Products will begin to hit shelves on August 2. An LTE model will be arriving later this year.

In the coming weeks, Surface Go will be available for pre-order in Japan, Singapore, Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong, and in China with more markets to follow.
