Yesterday we reported that Flipkart has put up a banner teasing the imminent launch of Microsoft Surface Go. We have now discovered a hidden webpage on Flipkart that confirms the device will go on pre-order today.
The webpage was spotted on Flipkart mobile app but disappeared later. The webpage confirms that the device will go on pre-0rder at noon today and will be available in two variants. The Microsoft Surface Go will come with 4 GB/8 GB RAM and 64 GB/128 GB of storage and will cost 37,999 and 49,999 respectively. Flipkart is also running several offers on the pre-order and you can check them out below.
- Flat 2,000 INR off on prepaid transactions
- Flat 4,000 INR off on the Microsoft Surface Go Type Cover
- Free router usage+2 months+1500 GB with 6 months of subscription by ACT Fibernet worth 4,000 INR
- Get flat 10,000 INR off on domestic packages starting at 50,000 INR by Thomas Cook
- Free Annual subscription of Hungama Play worth 799 INR
- Complimentary Laser Hair Removal worth 1,999 INR & 1000 INR off on all Kaya Services
While it’s good that Microsoft is considering India as an important market for Surface devices, the prices are way too high. To put things in perspective 37,999 INR is around $530 and 49,999 INR is around $700. At these prices, Surface Go will be tough to sell. Anyway, if you want pre-order the device when it becomes available then you can do so by going to Flipkart.
