Microsoft Surface comes with a sturdy, integrated kickstand and a SmartCover-esque cover, that features a fully functioning keyboard, with a trackpad.
It connects with a”single magnetic click”that’ll make it an ease to swap out (or just take off, if you’d rather).
“I can touch type on this as fast as I can type on any keyboard.”said Microsoft’s Michael Angiulo.
Touch Cover comes in five colors – black, red, blue, and pink.
