The Touch Cover is a futuristic multitouch keyboard accessory for the Microsoft Surface tablet that brings a thin profile and a measure of protection, but for those of you who'd prefer a tried and true tactile keyboard with real trackpad buttons, you'll wanna get a look at the Type Cover. Since the Touch Cover is a capacitive touch keyboard without any moving keys, it's the slimmer of the two, measuring in at 3mm thin compared to the Type Cover's 5mm thickness.
The first accessory announced for the new Microsoft Surface tablet today is the Touch Cover. A seemingly brilliant take on the tablet cover accessory, the Touch Cover serves as both a protective cover for Surface, as well as a full multitouch keyboard. You just open up the Surface kickstand, and the Touch Cover lays flat (3mm thin) and even registers typing faster than any other keyboard currently on the market, according to Microsoft. You get a full keyboard and touchpad. If that isn't your jam, you can opt for the Surface Type Cover instead.
We give you a first-look at the new Apple iPad Smart Case in this episode. The iPad Smart Case is similar to the Smart Cover, except that instead of just covering the front display of the iPad, it actually covers the entire body, front and back. It's available in six colors for $49 from the Apple Store, and we give you a look at how it works. Also be sure to read our iPad Smart Case review, and check out the iPad Smart Case photo gallery as well.
We just hit you with our full Apple iPad Smart Case review, and you should really check that out if you're considering picking up Apple's first full case for its popular tablet. In addition to the written review, we've put together a gallery of images showing off the good and the bad--and there's a lot of bad in our mind. As you'll see, ports don't line up with the holes in the case, and there's an odd lip all around the perimeter that just makes it awkward to hold. Go and judge for yourself in our iPad Smart Case gallery, and let us know what you think.

Apple has announced the new Smart Case accessory for the new iPad. The Smart Case is similar to the Smart Cover that's been available since the iPad 2 shipped, but it protects both the front and back of the new iPad shell. It's available in six colors, and can even be personalized with free laser engraving, a first for an Apple accessory. The Smart Case also features the familiar tri-fold design that the Smart Cover has, allowing you to comfortably use the iPad to type and watch media. Check out all of today's Apple news coming out of the WWDC 2012 keynote.
We know that it's hard to find variety when looking for a great iPad case. Our main problem with the cases is that we want something that adds a level of form and function while also offering protection, but we don't want something that hard to take the iPad out of, because we don't want to use an iPad that's stuck in a bulky case. Up until now, there's been no way for us to have our cake and eat it too, but that's set to change with the success of the Bowden + Sheffield Minimalist iPad Cases Kickstarter project. While the project wraps up in 16 more hours as of this writing, it's surpassed its $20,000 goal. What makes this case so good? Well, for starters, both cases look fantastic. The case designs are similar, with the difference lying in the materials.

If you wanna get one for yourself, the JAMBOX typically sells for $199, but you can get it on Amazon for $162.
