A new Surface Go Signature Type Cover offers ergonomic key pitch and exceptional key travel.

But iOS on the vanilla iPad is also optimised for touch operation, while Windows 10 is still awkward in that mode. Surface Go will support Dolby Audio Premium as well as the Surface Pen. Here's everything you need to know about the new product, which really seems to be taking aim at the iPad.

What do you think about the specifications and pricing of the Microsoft Surface Go? This is supposedly the most comfortable format for users, whether studying, working or watching Netflix. Maybe don't expect to play "Fortnite" with the graphics settings cranked way up, though.

Up to Pentium Gold processor.

The 4GB RAM and 64GB storage variant is priced at $399 (roughly Rs 34,323) and $549 (roughly 37,762) for the 8GB and 128GB storage variant.

Battery life is rated at 9 hours, which is a bit short compared to the marathon batteries in more recent Surface devices, but we'll have to see how that holds up in real world use. It also has a microSD card reader, Surface Connect and a headphone jack.

The Surface Go should provide plenty of endurance. Otherwise, you get a single port for USB-C - a new universal standard that replaces the USB slot you might be familiar with.

For a hands-on with the device, check out our sister site, Laptop Mag. An LTE model should be available later this year.

Microsoft has a new and affordable tablet in town: welcome the Microsoft Surface Go, a 10-inch tablet with the Windows experience on board, support for a pen, a neat adjustable hinge and a few other extras. That's less than a similarly configured Surface Go, but the iPad comes with just 32GB of storage for the entry-level model.

In both cases, Microsoft is employing the same sales pitch as the rest of the Surface lineup.

Getting such a small device the power to run a full version of Windows took some fine tuning, said Pete Kyriacou, Microsoft's program manager for the Surface.

So while the device is clearly an attempt to compete with the iPad, which Apple now promotes as "like a computer".

So far, Microsoft has struggled to make a hit Surface product. The Surface Go comes with a 10-inch display and has arrived with an attractive starting price of $399. You could say Apple is all about the consumer and Microsoft appeals to business users. The price point, and likely discounts for bulk orders, are likely to make the Surface Go an attractive option for schools.

There is a custom-calibrated 3:2 display created to be easy on the eyes for work, and high-contrast for entertainment, drawing and artwork and editing photos. However, it is not quite as powerful as the Surface Pro in terms of specifications and features.

However, in recent weeks, it's been rumored that Microsoft was closer than ever to revealing Andromeda, a brand-new pocketable Windows device with two screens.

Well, it's certainly possible that Andromeda is still in the works.
