Microsoft just announced the Surface Pro 3 at a press event in New York City. The new model features a 12-inch display, which is up from the 10.6-inch display found in the Surface Pro and Surface Pro 2. As such, Microsoft also announced a new Type Cover to go with the Surface Pro 3. Now those Type Covers aren’t cheap and we know a lot of you are wondering if your ‘old’ Type Covers will work with the Surface Pro 3.
Yes. Yes they do.
Daniel and Mark are still lurking around the press event grabbing photos and shooting video. Dan busted out the second-generation Type Cover he had and connected it to the Surface Pro 3. It does work and you’ll be able to use it. Though it might not be ideal since the smaller footprint of the older Type Covers won’t completely cover the larger display with the Surface Pro 3.
Those looking to get a Surface Pro 3 can still get some use out of their older accessories.
