New Accessories Released for Surface Pro 2

At today’s press event for the Surface Pro 2, Microsoft announced that they would be introducing new accessories for the Surface Pro 2.

Power Cover:

The Power Cover is pretty much a charging case for your tablet. The Power Cover will give 2.5x as much battery life.

Surface Docking Station:

Now this is cool. Emphasizing the workstation capabilities, the docking station has 3 USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0 port, mini Displayport, Ethernet, Audio In, Audio Out and Power capabilities. However, there is no HDMI capability, which is a bit disappointing. You can power up to a 3840 x 2160 resolution external display.

Type Cover 2.0:

Type Cover 2.0 are the new keyboard covers for your Surface Pro. “It’s a beautiful product,” exclaimed Panos Panay. So what’s new? It’s 1mm thinner than the previous, which gives an improved ergonomic experience. And the cool part now is that the keyboard is now backlit. It has a proximity sensor to determine when to dim and light up the keyboard.
