Microsoft revealed its cheaper alternative to the $799 Surface Pro back in July, in the form of the $399 Surface Go.

Nonetheless, the tablet offers impressive battery life, despite having a 1800 x 1200 10-inch PixelSense display. There's also a USB-C port, 3.5mm headphone jack, a microSDXC card reader, and the Surface Type Cover port for the optional keyboard cover.

LTE adds $130 to the system price.

Tom Brady responds to Dion Lewis' 'cheap' comment after loss to Titans
I know those guys. "I did that a few times today and Marcus was dropping dimes all day, and we came out with a win". Former Patriots defensive back Logan Ryan ended the first half by sacking Brady for a 7-yard loss.

The built-in LTE connection means you no longer have to hunt for Wi-Fi networks when you're away from home or the office, and you won't need to tether your smartphone connection. Those customers, meanwhile, will get a second configuration of the tablet.

The November 20 launch date applies to the United States and Canada, with availability spreading to other markets just two days later.

Microsoft's most diminutive Surface tablet, the Surface Go, follows in the footsteps of its older and since-replaced brother the Surface Pro by getting an option to configure it with LTE Advanced connectivity. That will double the storage, taking it to 256 GB of flash, and then bump up the price to $829.

Here in the United Kingdom, the Surface Go with LTE is also pre-orderable right away but folk will have to wait until 22 November before shipping commences.
