A cover and a keyboard

Indeed, one feature that's particularly intriguing is the magnetically attached, 3mm-thich Touch Cover that folds down and functions as a full touch-screen keyboard. They come in a choice of colors.

Or get a trackpad

The thicker 5-mm Type Cover has a built-in trackpad. The keyboards power down when they're folded back against the tablet, thanks to a built-in accelerometer.
