Last night, Microsoft announced the Surface Go, its smaller tablet that starts at $399. Weighing in at just 1.15 pounds, it's powered by an Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y CPU, a dual-core, 6W chip that's built on Intel's 14nm Kaby Lake architecture.
While it will be available in the United States and Canada on August 2, you can pre-order yours right now, along with the optional accessories. Oddly, the device isn't actually searchable on the Microsoft Store just yet, but the listings are there.
Markets where you can pre-order the device now include the U.S., 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.
In the United States, the Surface Go will cost $399 for 4GB RAM and 64GB eMMC storage, or $549 for 8GB RAM and 128GB SSD.The Surface Go for Business models cost $50 more.
The new Surface Go Signature Type Cover will run you $99 in any color as long as it's black. If you want the Alcantara ones that come in Platinum, Burgundy, or Cobalt Blue, that will run you $129. For the new Surface Mouse, that's just $34.99, and it comes in Platinum, Burgundy, and Cobalt Blue.

If you're not located in the United States, the Microsoft Store should redirect you to your region's listing. If it doesn't, go to the bottom left where it says United States, click it, and select your region from the list.
