The Touch Cover, which is one of two keyboards scheduled to release alongside the Surface, is not simply a peripheral, according to Microsoft. The Touch Cover is designed to enhance a users Windows 8 experience.
Features that immediately stand out with the Touch Cover are its wafer-thin dimensions and non-moving keys. As the video shows, the Touch pad is no bigger than a cardboard folder and weighs only slightly more than one. Microsoft intends the Touch Cover to be a natural extension of the Surface, it’s not meant to be a cumbersome add-on, but a device that works seamlessly.
As far as non-moving keys are concerned, the feeling, or lack thereof, when tapping away might take a little getting use to. Microsoft, however states that this does not inhibit the writing process and high typing rates are easily achieved.
