Microsoft video shows how Redmond improved the Type Cover on the Microsoft Surface 2
A short video running 94 seconds shows some of the improvements that Microsoft made to its Windows-RT powered slate. For example, a high resolution sensor has been embedded into Touch Cover and Type Cover to make the accessories more responsive. More colors are available for Type Color and the QWERTY is now back lit. 

The Microsoft Surface 2 is thinner and lighter than the original model and offers improved resolution. Microsoft also upgraded the silicon from the Tegra 3 used on the Surface RT to the Tegra 4 employed on the Surface 2.

The Microsoft Surface RT did not have what you would call a positive sales experience. Microsoft ended up having to take a $900 million charge for unsold units of the slate. Assuming that the Redmond based software giant learned its lesson from the poor experience it had with the first-gen slab, the Microsoft Surface 2 could be a marvelous turnaround story in 2013-2014.
