Microsoft is finally bringing mobile connectivity to its Surface Go. It’s known as “Surface Go with Advanced LTE,” and the tablet will be available for business customers as well as regular consumers.
If you’re a regular consumer, you only get one configuration, which includes the Surface Go with 8GB of memory, 128GB of storage, and of course, with 4G connectivity for $679. This model will come with Windows 10 Home in S mode, but you can always upgrade to the full version of Windows 10 Home at no extra cost.
If you’re a business customer, you can pick from the model with 8GB of memory and 128GB of storage for $729, which is more expensive than the consumer’s variant, but it’s because the device comes with Windows 10 Pro in S mode. You can always upgrade to the full version of Windows 10 Pro at no extra cost.
You can also pick the variant with 256GB of storage and 8GB of memory for $829.
Initially, the tablet with 4G LTE will be available through these providers (via ZDNet): Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, SoftBank, DoCoMo, KDDI, EE UK, and Vodafone UK.
Microsoft’s Surface Go with Advanced LTE is expected to be available in the United States and Canada on November 20. Then on November 23, the device will be available in 23 additional markets.
You can pre-order the tablet now at the Microsoft Store, and if you prefer the device without 4G LTE, you can get the base model for $399.
