What you need to know

  • The Surface Slim Pen is now up for preorder at Microsoft.
  • The redesigned stylus debuted alongside the Surface Pro X, and it packs wireless charging.
  • You can preorder the Surface Slim Pen at Microsoft now for $150 ahead of its November 5 release date.

Along with all of the new Surface PCs Microsoft introduced at its October Surface event, the company also debuted a few new accessories. Chief among them is the new Surface Slim Pen, which is now available to preorder for $150.

The Surface Slim Pen, much the like the Surface Pro X it appeared with, is a complete redesign of the classic Surface stylus. It now features a flat side to help it fit into a cradle, and it includes wireless charging. When paired with the Surface Pro X, you can slot the pen in a cradle above the keyboard to keep it charging on the go.

Microsoft also says that the Surface Slim Pen is "compatible with a wide variety of Surface devices," though it doesn't provide a comprehensive list. Presumably, you'll be able to use it across all of the newest Surface devices, and likely ones from recent years as well.

The Surface Slim Pen is available to preorder now for $150 and is set to start shipping on November 5.
