The Touch Cover is both a protective screen cover and a keyboard for the Surface Pro or Surface RT tablets.
What sets it apart from most keyboard covers is the flat keys. The surface of the cover is pressure-sensitive, allowing you to type by pressing down on any of the keys — but you won’t feel them move under your fingers. This allows the cover to be thinner than most keyboard covers, and also spill-resistant, although typing on a Touch Cover can take a little getting used to.
The cover latches onto the tablet’s edge using magnets, and clicks into place with a pretty sturdy connection.
Microsoft sells the Touch Cover in black, white, red, blue, and magenta colors.
Microsoft also offers a Surface Type Cover with physical keys, but that model’s almost twice as thick as the 3mm Touch Cover, and it currently sells for $130. There’s no word on whether the Type Cover will also get a price cut.
