Microsoft offers quick behind-the-scenes Surface 2 video

Even as Microsoft says it is running out of pre-orders for some of its new Surface tablets, the company continues to promote the devices ahead of its October 22nd launch date. On Monday, Microsoft released a quick behind-the-scenes video with several members of the Surface team taking about the new features.

Much of the video is devoted not to the tablets themselves but to the new Touch Covers that will be released alongside the new Surface models. The clip shows some exploded units of the new cover that really showcase its matrix of smaller sensors that not only enable simply typing but can also support a number of touch gestures that work with the Surface. It also shows off the different color choices and the backlit keys on the keyboard.

The rest of the video has Surface team members discuss how the Surface 2 is thinner and lighter and also has the new kickstand version with two positions. If you haven't seen our previous coverage of the new Surface models the content in the video is nothing new but the clip is a quick way to show some of the more important points about the upcoming tablets.
