Alcantara Everywhere teases Panos Panay

Microsoft is expected to unveil a new Surface Pro at tomorrow’s hardware event, but leaks have suggested besides upgraded internals it will be much of the same.

It seems Microsoft will, however, change one thing about the look of the device.

Surface head Panos Panay has tweeted about the above image, which shows a selection of type covers covered in Microsoft’s favourite new material – Alcantara.

The type covers will be available in a range of 4 colours, including gold.

The revelation has caused some pithy comments from users, who noted that they wanted computers, not carpets, from Microsoft.

Microsoft may also reveal other accessories at the event, with a new Bluetooth desktop keyboard with fingerprint reader passing through the Bluetooth SIG recently.
