When Microsoft introduced Surface one of the things they boasted about was the Touch and Type Cover keyboards. These super thin keyboard attach to the Surface with magnets and double as covers. Surface is greatly improved with these covers, but unfortunately they were not included with a purchase. Instead they were pricey accessories.
Today Microsoft has announced that for a limited time all Surface RT tablets will come free with either a Touch or Type Cover. The Touch Cover, the very thing and flat keyboard, usually costs $119 separately. The Touch Cover, which is more like a traditional keyboard, costs $129 separately. Just go to Microsoft’s website and add the 32GB ($499) or 64GB (599) version to your cart. Next it will let you choose what cover and color you want.
Microsoft did not say when the “limited time” will expire, so take advantage of it while the sale lasts.
