Microsoft offering UK consumers free Touch or Type cover with Surface RT
As consumers continue to wait patiently for the Surface Pro to launch in the UK, Microsoft has kicked off an interesting deal for its Surface RT Windows 8 tablets. Should you look to purchase one from the official online store or supporting retailers, the company will hand you a free Touch or Type cover per transaction.
Purchases of Surface RT standalone or in a bundle between May 15th and June 30th will be eligible for the offer. This deal will only continue while stocks last, so be sure to get in quick if interested. Head on down to your local retailer or to Surface.com (opens in new tab) to make your purchase and get the free cover. Thanks, Mark, for the tip!

But I'm waiting for a Nokia tablet.
I shall return my Surface+touchcover and extra type cover to John lewis tomorrow (god bless their 90 day no questions returns policy) and buy it back £130 cheaper :-D
Personally I can't stand the touch cover, partly because I am a fast typer, but mostly because touching rough fabric like that makes my spine shiver, so typing it horrible and using the track pad is out of the question :-D
Yes it may be a bit pikey to return it and buy it again, but the store is only 3 minutes drive from my office, and there's no harm :-)
