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.
