If you are considering purchasing a Microsoft Surface wireless keyboard adapter and have not yet taken the plunge, you might already be too late.
As Microsoft has this week announced it will no longer be making the Surface wireless keyboard adapters, that were launched fairly recently back in September 2013.
As you can see in the image above the Surface wireless keyboard adapter is the thin charcoal grey cylinder at the top of the keyboard, which provides Bluetooth connectivity to the Surface Type and Touch keyboard covers. Allowing users to connect to their Microsoft Windows tablet, up to 30 feet away.
A Microsoft spokesperson explained a little more on the decision but did not comment on the specific factors that have pushed Microsoft into discontinuing the adapter explaining:
“Due to a number of factors, we are no longer manufacturing the Surface Wireless Keyboard Adapter,”-“We are always evaluating our options and remain committed to helping people be productive with Surface.”
If you are quick you can still pick up a Microsoft Surface wireless keyboard adapter from some online stores for $59.99, however the Microsoft store now lists the wireless adapter as out of stock.
