  • Hi there,

    I have just bought a used Surface RT from Amazon as my portable Windows tablet on the go. I can see that it has a quite good battery life. Now I want to buy a surface pro 3 type cover for using with my Surface RT as in future I might buy another Surface Pro 3.

    The question is, will surface pro 3 type cover on work with the Surface RT?

    Hi Conor,

    I do have both Surface RT and Surface Pro 3 type cover. I have already tried using my Surface Pro 3 type cover with my Surface RT and the answer is yes, it works together but with some limitation.

    All keys are working perfectly. However, there are some problems with the trackpad. Here are what works and not works:
    – Moving => Work! but not smooth
    – Single tab to click => Sometimes Work!
    – Double tab to right-click => Not Work!
    The 5 minute veterinary consult pdf download. – Left click/ Right click => Work!

  1. You may use the Microsoft Touch Cover or Type Cover to pair with Surface RT/Pro tablet instead of touching. When you attach it and go to type something like email, you will hear the clicking sound you are making. The buttons from the cover don’t like a normal keyboard’s. And the clicking sound let you feel like using actual buttons.
  2. Surface is my device. Surface 2 is the 'new' Surface RT, and the Pro versions are full versions of Windows 8.1. In the link you posted, at the bottom, the list of compatible devices lists the following: Surface, Surface 2, Surface Pro, and Surface Pro 2 I agree, but the full name of the Surface RT was always Surface RT, so the list is a bit odd.
