Surface Pro Type Cover with Fingerprint reader hitting Europe March 15th, pre-order now

type cover with fingerprint reader

It was always somewhat strange that the Surface Pro 4 type cover with a Fingerprint Reader was only available in USA, and today Microsoft had the welcome news that the accessory will finally make the jump over the Atlantic this month and become available on the 15th March in European Microsoft Stores.

The accessory will not be cheap, costing 179.99 Euro or £134.99 in UK but of course brings Windows Hello support to the Surface Pro 3 and augments the face-reading Windows Hello on the Surface Pro 4, and is generally considered to be more reliable than the other technology.

The accessory can be pre-ordered in UK here and  in Germany here and France here.
