Microsoft might be done in the area of smartphone manufacturing, but it is still in the game of producing tablets with the desktop Windows Operating System. The company just announced a 10-inch tablet that came with Windows 10 out-of-the-box, although with its Lite S flavor. It is none other than the Microsoft Surface Go. The tablet has the same form factor as the Surface Pro but is quite cheaper, lighter, and prettier to some extent. Check it out in the video below
