The Surface Pro X features an upgraded design for the Surface Pro line, including slimmer bezels and a thinner body than any Surface Pro device we've ever seen. To go along with that new design, Microsoft announced the Surface Pro X Signature Keyboard and the Surface Slim Pen. These devices combine with the Surface Pro X to provide a variety of input methods. Now, there's a bundle with both accessories available for preorder on Microsoft's website for $270.
The Surface Pro X Signature Keyboard features Alcantara fabric and has a charging cradle for the Surface Slim Pen. This bundle includes the Alcantara version of the keyboard, which is not currently listed on Microsoft's website to purchase separately. If you'd prefer to get the non-Alcantara version, it's available for preorder for $140.
The Surface Slim Pen has an updated design that allows it to fit inside the charging cradle of the Surface Pro X's keyboard. It's flatter than other Surface Pens, with a somewhat similar feel to a carpenter's pencil according to Mr. Mobile. It charges wireless and rests inside the keyboard when not in use. The Surface Slim Pen is "compatible with a wide variety of Surface devices," according to Microsoft, but the company did not provide a complete list of supported devices. If you'd prefer to preorder the Surface Slim Pen separately, it's available for $145 on Microsoft's website.
The bundle's listed release date is October 22, 2019.
