Strange rumor of the day: Is Microsoft working on an iPad keyboard like the Smart Keyboard?

If you ask any minimally tuned person in the tech world today what is the biggest rival of the iPad Pro available on the market, the answer will surely be the Surface profrom Microsoft. Satya Nadella's giant has done a great job on its line of computers, and the tablet / hybrid has been doing very well in its role as the flagship of the family, making it even a formidable competitor to Apple's most expensive tablets. .

One reason for the success of both the Surface and iPad Pro lines is the amount of really useful official accessories that complement its functionality; in this sense the Smart keyboard, from Ma, and the Type Cover, gives Big m, represent the crux of this idea of ​​expansiveness brought by both products. But what if I tell you that one company is apparently intending to enter the other's ground in the near future?

I explain myself: earlier today, the WinFuture noticed something different on the Microsoft website. On a page listing the company's products with an internal lithium battery, a IPad Touch Cover entitled to model code and all (1719). The name says it all, isn't it?

Surface Touch Cover

Obviously, such a product does not (yet) exist in the real world, so we can only ask: would it be a slip of the Redmond giant? It is not possible to state any other details of this project other than the fact that it has an internal battery. Perhaps it was an idea discarded by Microsoft; We may be within days / weeks of your official announcement.

What's more, note that the name Touch Cover indicates a keyboard / cover with capacitive keys, going against the latest Microsoft accessories, which bring real keys, the company offered touch-sensitive keyboard covers for the first Surfaces, as pictured above, but the idea was soon filed for the sake of accessories, say, tactile. Is this a strategy from Satya and her class not to deliver all the gold competition or more indicative that we are talking about a stillborn product? Only so many questions.

We will be linked for more information about this cryptic rumor. Opinions?
