KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Just don't expect to see Microsoft's zany folding dual-screen Surface Andromeda handheld - apparently, that project may be in danger now. Some consumers simply can't afford them.

The sub-$400 price point is key for Microsoft as it tries to turn its Surface business into a more serious challenger to other computer hardware makers.

Thanks to the Go's downsized 10-inch 1800 x 1200 screen, which Microsoft claims has been created to "render the page to the scale of most school textbooks", the Surface Go tips the scales at just 1.15 pounds and measure in at a positively-skinny 8.3mm. How much does it cost?

It's the price tag that will make it more appealing for many people, shaving several hundred dollars off the price of the latest version of the Surface Pro, which starts at $799.

Finally, Microsoft says that a model with LTE cellular connectivity is in the works, but won't be ready until later this year. You have to buy a Surface Go Type Cover (black) for $99 or a Signature Type Cover with Alcantara (Burgundy, Cobalt Blue, or Platinum) for $129.

I also feel that the RAM configurations for the Surface Go add more confusion to the mix. The keyboard will be offered in three colors - Burgundy, Cobalt Blue, and Platinum.

The Surface Go also features a USB-C port and a micro SD expansion slot. Apparently, both can be used for charging. That's less than a similarly configured Surface Go, but the iPad comes with just 32GB of storage for the entry-level model. What if you could have a tablet as small as an iPad, but didn't lock you into the less than capable iOS?

Sadly for photographers, it has a micro SD card reader, and not a full-size SD card reader.

The Surface Go that features an inbuilt kickstand looks like a smaller edition of the Surface Pro.

I had the chance to go hands-on with the device before its unveiling, and there's a lot to like.

The Microsoft Surface Go is a teeny-tiny laptop/tablet hybrid with a 10-inch screen, clocking in at just 1.15 pounds. Bloomberg's sources also suggested that this Surface will continue to use Intel processors rather than the ARM SoCs inside the company's past thrusts into the lower-priced tablet space. Hey, at least it's fanless.

Thankfully, the minimum memory offered is 4GB - there is no crappy 2GB variant.

The device runs Windows 10 in S mode but can be upgraded to Windows 10 Home for those of you who want apps from sources beyond the Windows Store. For commercial-channel buyers, you will have the option to have this device shipped with Windows 10 Pro.

An official document leaked by a Reddit user indicates that the device might possibly be launched this week, along with a new Type Cover.

If you're in Japan, you can order it starting on July 11, in Singapore and Korea on August 2, and in China on August 8. The company tweeted out the leading question "Where will Surface go next?" along with an image of the full lineup - the Pro, Laptop, Book 2 and swiveling all-in-one Studio.
