Microsoft launched the Surface Go in July, but those first models were Wi-Fi only. That changes November 20th when the new Surface Go LTE variant releases, and Microsoft is taking pre-orders starting today, and promising delivery dates of November 21st. Go here to pre-order directly from Microsoft.
The LTE model adds cellular connectivity and GPS. It also increases the price. The 128GB, 8GB RAM LTE is on pre-order for $679.00 or $611.oo for students, parents, teachers, and active duty military members. That’s $130 above the Wi-Fi-only version.
The Surface Go LTE features a 10-in screen with a 3:2 aspect ratio, 1800×1200 resolution, and 217 PPI. it weighs in a 1.17 pounds (532g) without the Type Cover, which is sold separately.
For Screen Dandy’s audience: The LTE option makes the Surface Go an even more attractive option for readers looking for a high-end, always connected digital reading device. For writers, the versatility of the Surface Go in its small size with online access is attractive, but the small footprint and high price make it a situational recommendation.
