Microsoft Surface does have a virtual QWERTY keyboard, but the Touch Cover and the Type Cover are both available as accessories. As we pointed out, the former is a cover with a touch sensitive QWERTY keyboard while the latter is a cover that doubles as a traditional QWERTY keyboard with raised keys. Both connect to the tablet with the use of a magnetic dock. Even though most people are used to the style of the keyboard on the Type Cover, many are saying that the typing experience is superior on the cheaper Touch Cover.
Later on Friday, Amazon took down the price of the listing, replacing it with a message that it would notify those who leave their email address when the cover is back in stock.
