Surface Go availability: countries, pre-orders, and more

Microsoft just unveiled the Surface Go, a pint-sized portable PC with a pile of style and affordability. Starting at just $399 (opens in new tab), it will be the cheapest available Surface when it starts rolling out in the coming months. For everything you need to know about the Surface Go, head over to here. The real question is, though, when can you buy one of these?

The Surface Go will hit 35 markets by October 2018, making it one of the most rapidly available Surface devices in recent memory (which historically hit the US first, then trickle out to other territories later).

  • Lol, today is the 10th and on Microsoft's Belgian website there isn't even an announcement about the Go 🤔
  • Because they're watching the world cup.
    Aren't you interested in what Lukaku and co. is up to.
  • Sure am. Setting up my Surface Pro 3 to play it on our TV outside 😁 Finals here we come! (I hope)
  • Lol yes you are.
  • Tried the UK site at 9am, was told to come back at Midday. Tried at Midday, nothing..... Tried at 12:30, nothing..... :(
  • Right, issue has been cleared up. Just off the line with a Microsoft UK rep. Turns out the device goes up for pre-order at Midday USA time (not sure if that's east or west coast) So it's going to be somewhere between 6pm and 9pm UK time before they hit the UK site
  • Thanks for the info!
  • Brasil really doesn't get any love from MS...
  • You should add Poland, Go will be available on August 28. :)
  • Finally, a rapid roll out I was worried they would go for the trickle down approach again...
