A new - and affordable - Microsoft Surface tablet might arrive this week

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 new 10-inch Surface Go, which ships August 2 in the US and two dozen other markets, is the least costly among the five Surface devices that Microsoft makes. There is no indication if this will simply be a preorder phase for the tablet or if they will actually start shipping on 7/13. The Microsoft Surface Go will cost customers $399 excluding Keyboard which will be priced at $99 or $129 (Alcantara).

One thing worth noting that doesn't come across in the specs: The Surface Go's glass trackpad is bigger than on the Surface Pro.

The Type Cover, of course, is the detachable keyboard for the Surface. A new Surface Mobile Mouse is on the way too, but I don't have pricing for that at the time of writing.

It'll be notable if the tablet does have a USB-C port, since previous Surface tablets required a proprietary Microsoft adapter for charging and data. The device will be available in the following countries: US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Poland, Taiwan, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Malaysia, and Thailand. The Type Cover adds another 0.5 pounds to the Go's weight, but the combined system still feels light and easy to hold.

The Surface Go that features an inbuilt kickstand looks like a smaller edition of the Surface Pro. The tablet runs on an Intel Pentium 4415Y dual-core processor, with a base clock frequency of 1.6 GHz, a tdp of 6W and associated Intel HD Graphics 615. It will be available in two variants - 4GB of RAM/ 64GB of eMMC storage and 8GB of RAM and 128GB SSD storage, a report by The Verge claims.

Lokesh Rahul too stayed for a while but the much-needed partnership for India came between Rohit and captain Virat Kohli . The Powerplay of 73 for 0 was the best in T20Is in England , and the home side's second-best effort anywhere.

It is the thinnest and sleekest Surface model launched till date with the width of just 8.3 mm.

Microsoft Surface Go has been made official, the latest member in the Surface 2-in-1 lineup. Unfortunately, as with the more powerful Surface Pro tablets, a keyboard is not included, making the initial price a bit misleading.

Finally, Microsoft says that a model with LTE cellular connectivity is in the works, but won't be ready until later this year. LTE and 256GB SSD models are coming later.

Surface Go will run versions of Windows 10 and Office apps.

One interesting addition on the Surface Go is a Near Field Sensor.
