Microsoft Drops a “Signature” Version of the Surface Pro 4 Type Cover

Microsoft is taking a page from the Apple playbook with the ‘launch’ of its new ‘signature’ type cover for the Surface Pro 4 device.

“The Signature Type Cover is crafted in a stunning, two-tone gray mélange style of Alcantara—a unique, proprietary material, sourced only in Italy, with aesthetic, sensory, and technical qualities like nothing you’ve ever experienced,” Microsoft explains on the Type Cover’s promo page. “Alcantara material ages beautifully, growing richer and darker

over time and is wonderfully soft to touch. The Signature Type Cover was crafted from the latest generation of Surface Pro keyboards, which provides the perfect amount of travel in every keystroke, spaced keys for faster typing, and a larger glass track-pad.”

Microsoft also sells a higher-end version with a Windows Hello-compatible fingerprint reader, in black, for $159.99.

I guess I’ll have to go to a store and see & feel this new ‘signature’ type cover for myself….
