“The Microsoft Surface Go tablet is now up for grabs in India at a starting price of Rs 37,999”
If you have been wanting to get your hands on the latest tablet computer from Microsoft, then the wait is finally over. The Microsoft Surface Go (first impressions) can now be purchased in India from Flipkart – it was actually listed to go on sale on December 27th, but the Flipkart listing page still showed it as ‘Coming Soon’ yesterday. However, it is finally available to buy on the e-commerce platform after the small delay. The tablet, unveiled globally in July this year, has been available for pre-orders since December 15th and is available in two variants. Those who prefer Windows over iOS and want an iPad alternative should check out the Surface Go tablet.
Microsoft Surface Go price in India
As mentioned above, the Microsoft Surface Go is available in two variants. The base variant, which gets 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, is priced at Rs 37,999. For the variant with 8GB RAM and 128GB of storage, you will have to pay Rs 49,999. Compared to the latest Apple iPads, the Surface Go is cheaper and probably a better buy if you are a Windows user. However, only the Wi-Fi variants are available on the site right now.
Microsoft Surface Go launch offers in India include Rs 2,000 off on prepaid transactions, Rs 4,000 off on the Type Cover, and Hungama Play annual subscription worth Rs 799. Along with that, buyers will get free ACT Fibernet broadband subscription of 6 months, free router and 1,500GB data for two months worth Rs 4,000.
