First look at Microsoft Surface Type Cover 2

First look at Microsoft Surface Type Cover 2

Type Cover 2 for Surface

When Microsoft announced the new Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 they also announced new covers, the Type Cover 2 and Touch Cover 2. Microsoft say the new covers are thinner and more accurate than the old versions and are backlit.

For the past year I have been using the Type Cover all the time, I find it great for writing with and it works better on my lap than the Touch Cover. So for my new Surface 2 (watch my unboxing here) I got the 2nd generation Type Cover, this time in purple!

The keyboard feel is about the same as first version of the Type Cover, which I already like but the cover is less plastic and more cloth. It seems a little quieter than the old version and is more rigid as well. With it being backlit it is also much better to use in low light conditions.

In this video I compare the Type Cover 2 to the original cover and try it with the lights out.
