Microsoft is rolling out an updated version of its Surface Go to include an LTE/4G advanced connectivity option
The Surface Go marks the latest among the Microsoft Tablet series, however, it uses to lack a feature that will be included in its upcoming update. The Surface Go will follow in the footsteps of its older and since-replaced brother the Surface Pro by getting an option to configure it with LTE Advanced connectivity.
Its only difference from the current model is the addition of a Nano SIM tray and the relevant antennas, which add about 0.4 oz/10 grams to the weight and seems to shave about 30 minutes off the nine-hour battery life.
Based on the highest-end Wi-Fi configuration with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage, it costs $550 (N199,842, £510, AU$840). The same consumer configuration with LTE adds $130, or $680 (directly converted, N247,047 £524 and AU$940). The commercial version is $730 (aboutN265,245, £562 and AU$1,010), but that has a 256GB option as well. Preorders start Monday for select markets, and Microsoft expects it to be available in 23 markets by Nov. 22. The company is yet to release any list that contains the names of the first set of the market to retail the new device, but it should be out any moment soon.
