My initial time with the keyboard for the new surface was an ok experience. At first glance it appears to be a well-built keyboard and made out of durable material. When attaching it to the device it snapped right in without issue and no drivers need to be installed. I was off and running. The touchpad is rather nice and gives you the clicking feeling as you press down on it. It is also very responsive and worked well. It took me a little while to get used to it as it was quite smaller than previous keyboards that I had been using. After a short time with it I was able to get the hang of it and everything worked great. The feel and function of it compared to many others. There are many other third party keyboards out there, some of which include swipe gestures, specifically the TouchPal that seems to be very popular and I would like to try it out soon.
