They claim the device works just fine sitting on your lap typing on the soft keyboard but from the picture it looks quite awkward/annoying. And honestly while I like my bright colored smart cover (as a fashion accessory) I don't know that I'd much care for a keyboard of the same color, especially if I'd be typing on it for any length of time. I think it would give me a headache.
Wow, you guys are something else. Complaining about keyboard colours when you can easily get black to match the device or white/grey. We will find out soon enough if it works on laps, but it does appear it does. The anti fanbois were screaming about no profile mode, when of course anyone folllowing W8 knew it existed and this review shows it. Its obvious from the pictures (not seen anywhere else) that they have had extra time with the tablet.
The Verge, which was really hard on the Lumia 900, was also positve about the Surface. They didn't have the same hands on, but said the Smart Cover was very innovative and did solve a tablet issue.
