Okay, so this is my dilemma of the week, just let me know which one you think I should get and why.
-I have a Surface RT, Lumia 920, and no Bluetooth computers (although I could pick up a cheap dongle).
-I already have a Touch Cover in Cyan for my Surface
I'm just wondering which one I should get:
-Keys are spread apart (which I love on my k750)
-3 Bluetooth devices at once and I can easily switch between them
-Extra item to carry around (rather than just a keyboard attached and covering my surface)
-Doesn't "click" and connect right with the surface
-Bluetooth could be a pain to setup every time
Microsoft Touch Cover:
-Connects with the surface; covers the device
-Includes a trackpad
-Can only use with the Surface
So what do ya guys think? Should I spring for a K810 or the Type Cover?
(I'm already getting the T650 and T620 as an incentive for being an external beta tester and I already knew about the K810 in September-I'm pretty loyal to Logitech)

I will probably get a K810 for Christmas. As much as the touch cover works and is very usable I think I would still like a tactile keyboard, especially one that is portable and has F-KEYS !!! which would be great for coding in VS2012.

Even though the K810 does not include a trackpad, I can always quickly add my Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse via USB.
I think I like the design more on the K810, and I love how it has backlit keys.

I have the 810, and my two favorite features are the light up keyboard, and the ability to easily switch between 3 Bluetooth devices with the touch of a button. I don't like that it didn't come with a case though. I also have a Logitech Bluetooth mouse that goes along great with this keyboard.
Another option I looked at, but it wasn't in stock, was the Microsoft Wedge keyboard (Microsoft Wedge Mobile Bluetooth Keyboard U7R-00001 - Best Buy)
It comes with a case that converts into a stand.

a stand alone keyboard requires either an additional or bigger case and more weight although the back lighting option is great.
you can't beat the portability of a surface with a type cover

Thanks for all the feedback!
I'm going to get the K810. Mostly because it is backlit and I can use it with three devices and easily switch between them. I just would like to use it around the house and I'll take the touch cover out with me.

Saying that I'm responding to everyone who says I shouldn't get anything is silly.
