Click in: Microsoft details Surface Touch Cover keyboard in new video

With all the attention given to Apple’s iPad mini today, it would be forgivable if you forgot that Microsoft’s Surface tablet is being released this Friday.

In the run-up to the tablet’s launch — which has partly sold out online and will be available at pop-up stores around Canada — Microsoft has released a new video showing off how it produced the 3mm thick Touch Cover keyboard. In what could be considered a miracle of engineering, the pressure-sensitive keyboard clicks into the tablet much like iPad’s Smart Cover. Combined with the Surface’s built-in kickstand, it allows the tablet to be used as one would a laptop.

What do you think of the Surface and its Touch Cover keyboard? Is it more desirable than the new iPad, which was updated today with a faster processor and new Apple’s Lightning connector?
