With the release of the Surface Pro 2, there is a new version of the Type Cover coming out - the Type Cover 2.
It is supposed to be an improvement over the original Type Cover, being both backlit and thinner. However, this means that the keys will have 1mm less travel, making it harder to type on. I've tried the original Type Cover and it was pretty good; I don't know if it still would be if the keys moved 1mm less.
Does anyone who is familiar with Surface hardware know
- if the original type cover is compatible with the Surface Pro 2?
- if there are any other advantages to using the new Type Cover other than the backlight and being thinner?
