    As for your desktop:
    You can choose to have a keyboard icon on your taskbar.
    Long press on taskbar
    Select toolbars
    Select Touch Keyboard

    It's literally right there, just swipe it and it's next to Power :)

    Can't see how they price this at $199. That's outrageous.

    Of course, $129 for the type cover was outrageous :-(

    I just talked to someone at the Microsoft store and she told me that the Power Cover would become available sometime in April. I hope it's closer to the first than the last!

    I'm Sure It Would!

    I'm sure the Power Cover would have all the features that the Type Cover has plus hopefully more. Not being backlit would certainlty be a step backwards!

    You could also swipe from top down to close the game.

    Yikes - April isn't ever "early" in any year! I wish they'd just announce a ship date and be done with it. I'm waiting on this, too, but I'm clearly going to have to use a stop-gap solution in the meantime. The touchscreen keyboard and my hands seem incompatible and the touch cover is only a very slight improvement over that. I have an old BT keyboard I can use when I'm home for now.

    I don't understand all the availability secrecy for a product they've already announced.

    I think that it is because Microsoft is either having trouble getting the same battery as in the Surface Pro 2, which will be used inside the keyboard.
    Or they are having problem producing the keyboard, as it's hard to find the TypeCover 2, and never seam to be in stock online.

    Just for reference, they were talking about the power Cover since the Surface Pro 1, hence why it had the 2 metal connectors next to the keyboard connector, and they said they were working on one back then, to address the low battery life of the device.
