Best Buy gets exclusive blue Type Cover as part of Surface Pro 3 pre-orders

Microsoft began taking pre-orders for its new 12-inch Surface Pro 3 tablet on Wednesday via its online store. However, it's not the only source for purchasing the company's newest hardware product; Best Buy has also begun to take pre-orders for the Surface Pro 3 as well.

The Best Buy website allows customers to purchase all five models of the Surface Pro 3, though only the ones with Intel's Core i5 processor will begin to ship on June 20th; the rest will begin shipping on August 31, including the cheapest $799 model. As revealed on the official Surface Twitter feed, Best Buy will also be the only source to get the blue version of the new and larger Type Cover. It will be priced at $129.99.

The site will also sell the purple, cyan and black Type Covers, but if you want to get the red version, it is being sold as an exclusive on the Microsoft Store website, again for $129.99. Microsoft and Best Buy already have a tight partnership thanks to the many Microsoft "store within a store" set ups at hundreds of Best Buy locations.
