Fans of Microsoft’s Surface Pro tablet, your wait is over!  Boost that Haswell goodness’ battery life a further 70% with the Surface Power Cover.  This keyboard boasts touch-typable keys that folds back out of the way when you want to use your Surface Pro as a tablet, disabling the keys or can be closed up against the tablet to put it into standby mode.  No word at the product page if this new keyboard will have the same backlighting found on the second-generation Touch and Type keyboards but it does have the same trackpad with virtual buttons.  Has an advertised ship date of March 19th at the time of this posting and it will cost you $200…but will grant you three wishes…more power, more power and, even better, MORE POWER! Preorders are being taken now at the Microsoft Store.

    My Power cover just came in! So far it works as well as expected. The only disappointment is that it does NOT have backlit keys. The only light on the keyboard is the CAPS lock LED.
