Surface Go is the smallest and cheapest 10-inch tablet on offer from Microsoft, weighing in at just 1.15 pounds - 0.25 pounds lighter than the Surface 3, and a smidgen heavier than the 1.03-pound iPad.

Apple's iPad Mini 4 is slightly smaller than the new Surface, with a 7.9-inch screen, and carries a $399 price tag for 128 GB of storage.

Panos Panay, chief product officer for Microsoft, said: "Surface Go is small and mighty, giving you the performance you need to be productive". There will be configurations with 4GB RAM / 64GB storage at $399, and 8GB RAM / 128GB storage at $549 (I'm not sure if the storage is eMMC or SSD).

Finally, we should note that the Surface Go is not now offered with 4G LTE support and you can only get a Wi-Fi one, while iPads are offered in both styles.

The Surface Go runs Windows 10 S runs out-of-the-box, This means users will only be able to access the Edge browser and apps available in the Microsoft Store. The exact size of the battery of the Surface Go is yet to be revealed. Microsoft today also unveiled the Surface Mobile Mouse with Bluetooth pairing for $35.

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.

Worst of all, the bezels are insanely large, making Surface Go look quite ugly.

The iPad starts at $329, but when you add an Apple Pencil and Logitech keyboard, the total zooms up to $527.95. The Surface Go has been officially launched with a £379 price tag and Windows 10 S.

What do you think about the Surface Go tablet?

Microsoft further claims that the Surface Go gets 9 hours of battery life, which comes with the caveat that this was tested by playing a video file that was stored on the device.

The company has also designed a totally new Type Cover which sells separately for $99, with a higher-end Alcantara version for $129.

Also like the Surface Pro, Microsoft even managed to squeeze a microSDXC card reader into the Surface Go under the kickstand. This suggests that we're in for a new Surface announcement tomorrow. Schools purchasing in the commercial channel will have the choice between Windows 10 Home in S Mode or Windows 10 Pro.

So who is the Surface Go for?

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.
