“We’re in­cred­i­bly thrilled with the en­thu­si­as­tic re­sponse that Malaysians have to­wards our Sur­face line of tablets thus far. The launch of the Sur­face 2 continues this mo­men­tum in bring­ing in a new cat­e­gory of de­vices that have trans­formed the way Malaysians work and play,” Ruk­mani com­mented.

Of the new ac­ces­sories, both the Touch Cover 2 and Type Cover 2 of­fers back­lit keys and im­proved typ­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, amongst other im­prove­ments. The new Sur­face Edi­tion Arc Touch Mouse pairs via Blue­tooth and can be flat­ten for easy stowage.
