Microsoft’s budget Surface Go finally lands in India

Microsoft Surface Go

Microsoft has finally decided to release the Surface Go in India. The 2-in-1 tablet made its debut all the way back in July, gaining prominence as the most affordable Surface tablet money can buy.

The Surface Go might cost less than the other Surface tablets, but it’s by no means cheap in India. The basic 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM option is priced at Rs 37999, while the 8GB of RAM and 128GB of ROM option goes for Rs 49999. As a point of comparison, Apple’s cheapest 9.7-inch iPad (2018) costs Rs 26999 on Flipkart.

The new Surface Go is also being sold via Flipkart. It’s currently up for pre-orders and will get released on December 27. The e-commerce site is bundling the device with a couple of offers to entice early birds. They’ll get a Rs 2000 cut if they make a prepaid transaction to purchase the tablet and a Rs 4000 discount on the Surface Go Type Cover.

The Surface Go Type Cover costs Rs 8699 for its black version and Rs 11799 for its more colorful burgundy, cobalt blue, and platinum counterparts. The Alcantara keyboard isn’t listed on Flipkart yet, but it should arrive sooner or later since there’s a bundled discount running on it.
