The Surface Go with LTE Advanced is now available to pre-order

Microsoft expands Surface family with new Surface Go LTE Advanced model

Microsoft has announced that pre-orders for LTE-enabled versions of its Surface Go tablet are now open.

In early July, Microsoft launched the compact Surface Go with a promise of laptop performance and tablet portability. Unlike the ARM-based Windows 10 notebooks and 2-in-1s we've seen from HP, Lenovo, and others, Microsoft opted to stick with an Intel x86 processor. It's affordable, starting at £379 ($399), but if you want a full-fat experience, then you'll need to buy the £100 Type Cover (available in black, platinum, burgundy or blue) and £100 Surface Pen separately.

Last week Microsoft added an extra configuration to the Surface Go lineup. Happily that's changing now.

All of the new Surface Go with LTE models are available to preorder from today.

The commercial models will ship with Windows 10 Pro (freely switchable to Windows 10 Pro in S Mode). The devices will be generally available in the US and Canada starting November 20 and in 21 additional markets as of November 22. The Surface Go with LTE will come to the United Kingdom and 20 other markets on 22 November.

It's 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.
