Incipio launches fresh pair of Surface Go cases

Incipio, a mainstay in the tech accessories industry, has outed a pair of new cases for Microsoft's entry-level Surface tablet, the Surface Go. There are only two options available for now, but you'll be able to choose between either a folio (opens in new tab) or molded shell (opens in new tab), both of which come in at $50.

First up is the Faraday, a folio case that combines a polycarbonate hard shell with a vegan leather front cover. The Faraday is fairly slim, and the cover is magnetic, so it should stay closed until you're ready to get to work. Once unfolded, the case can prop your Surface Go up, with the bending rear cover acting as a kickstand of sorts.

Incipio's Octane Pure case is another beast altogether. The clear shell covers the rear of the Surface Go to absorb any shocks or tumbles. There's also an integrated holder for the Surface Pen on the left side of the case, along with a kickstand on the rear.

If you're still looking out for a protective case for your Surface Go, both of Incipio's entries are now available for $50.

  • Any case that prohibits to use the Surface Go's own stand is not my choice.
  • It reminds me somehow of the old transparant Apple Cinema Display:
  • The folio one looks pretty awesome
