Microsoft Announces Wireless Adapter for Typing Covers

Microsoft unveiled the Surface 2, Surface Pro 2, and new accessories at a press event in New York City today.  Among the new accessories was a wireless adapter for the Surface Type Covers, which transform the keyboard into a Bluetooth enabled device for wireless typing.

Connect any Surface Typing Cover to Surface using Bluetooth® wireless technology. Type emails from the couch while Surface is plugged into your TV, or work collaboratively in the conference room.

Wireless Adapter for Typing Covers:

The Wireless Adapter for Typing Covers connects magnetically to any Touch or Type Cover, letting you type from anywhere in the room using Bluetooth technology, so it is even easier to connect Surface to a TV or monitor and type from another location, such as the couch. Wireless Adapter for Typing Covers will have an estimated retail price of $59.99. It will be available for pre-order in the U.S. and Canada beginning Sept. 24.
