According to Thurrott, "Microsoft has "refined" the kickstand that ships with the device. True: Surface Pro 2 (and Surface 2) will ship with an integrated two-position kickstand." (from the article linked above).
Ah. Just incomplete information in different, which is par for the course. It wouldn't make sense for Pro to have an additional angle and not the RT version, really.

Well, I'll wait and see about a multi-angle case, in any event. :p Cheaper than upgrading. 23SEP2013 will be an interesting day for this part of the industry.

Yeps...
 
So when does the SP2 come out? Any news on specs? Glad to see more RAM and upgraded CPU. I hope to see a higher capacity HDD and a backlit Type Cover. Oh, and of course a touchpad that's on par with 2013 technology a la Macbook quality (not 1995 gen 1 touchpads). Other than those (very minor) concerns, I love the SP!
