Our source tells us that the Surface Go X may be delayed till the fall but didn’t give any specifics as to why. We have to wonder if this has something to do with the recent announcement that Windows 10X is being reprioritized for single screen devices.

We have been told that the marketing campaign will be centered around remote learning, the broadband gap with the benefit of built-in LTE and Microsoft Teams. Considering that the Surface Go X may now be delayed we could see Microsoft still market the LTE version of the Surface Go 2 around remoted learning, the broadband gap and Microsoft teams.
