Microsoft Surface Video – Hands-On w/ Touch Cover and Type Cover
In this Microsoft Surface Video, the Tech Life Channel examines up close the the new MS Surface Tablet and the impressive Touch Cover. As you may know, the touch cover protects the device, but also doubles as a full keyboard with multi-touch trackpad support!
Initial reports indicate that typing on the Touch Cover is pretty good. We’ll have to see if this notion holds up once these Windows Tablets start shipping this Fall. We also see in the video the Type Cover, which is a traditional physical keyboard. The demonstrator explains that he types 50 words a minute with the Touch Cover and 62 words per minute with the Type Cover. I plan to have both covers when the Microsoft Surface Tablet ships.
