    Amazon.com: Blue Touch Cover for Microsoft Surface: Computers & Accessories

    Get it while you can. Probably an error.


    *EDIT*

    It just got marked as "temporarily out of stock" but it still lets you order it. I wonder if this was some Black Friday thing that got leaked early. I wasn't aware Amazon would be selling any surface products.

    *EDIT2* They now took it down entirely. So clearly a screw up on their part lol.


    *EDIT 3* And now the orders were deleted. So that is that.

    Yea, it's why I am wondering if maybe it was a Black Friday thing that wasn't suppose to appear yet and they just weren't done with the listing.

    I'm printing this out and taking in to the Microsoft Store when I trade my 32GB in for a 64GB. See what I can get out of them. It's worth a shot right?

    I just went ahead and ordered one out of curiosity. I can always cancel it and they won't charge me unless it ships.

    What I find interesting is that the listing is not for a cyan Touch Cover, but for a blue Touch Cover. The Touch Cover in the pictures looks considerably darker than the cyan ones we've seen so far. Maybe new colours are coming?

    There are a variety of Surface items up on Amazon including some tablets. My bet is the reason it came down and orders were cancelled is because Microsoft promptly hit the specific merchant with a cease and desist order or they just contacted Amazon and they did it for them. Microsoft and Amazon have a reasonable business relationship and I doubt they would want to threaten that over bootleg stuff or items being sold in violation Microsoft seller and reseller policies.

    The merchant WAS Microsoft.

    Not sure if you have seen these covers in person, but the cyan is considerably darker in person than what the images online would suggest, at least IMHO...
