Earlier this year, Microsoft launched their lower cost, smaller Surface Go. With a display size of 10 inches, and weighing 1.15 lbs, or 515 grams, it’s a more portable version of the popular Surface Pro.

Today Microsoft is announcing a new LTE variant for those that want to use the convertible PC even more on the go. The Surface Go has been paired with the Qualcomm X16 modem, which is the same modem they used in the Surface Pro LTE.

    Crazy that Microsoft is even attempting to sell tablet computers at this point. I was at a couple of retailers over the weekend including an office supply store and the local Best Buy. What used to be a filled-to-the-brim tablet section of each store was now a desolate wasteland where one might not be surprised to encounter a wayward tumbleweed. The office supply store (Staples) was the worst of the two. There was a 7" Kindle Fire and one iPad on display plus five other empty spaces on the shelves. No one buys tablets anymore. The laptop section looked healthy, but it's safe to say that tablets are following fast on the heels of netbooks as a fading fad.

    Remember 11" netbooks for $300? It is that, only overpriced and with smaller screen.
