The Scout is made to be a back cover for Microsoft’s tablet with a keyboard, and it is completely compatible with Microsoft’s Type Cover Keyboard and multiple keyboard positions. On the back is an aluminum kickstand that is good for 3 angular positions. Now, the official site says that it is good for portrait views, but I could get it to work that way. I can’t help but think that there is a hidden switch somewhere.
It does have a place to hold the Surface Pen, and it also has some interesting Frogskin Technology so you can get a grip on this when it is wet and slippery. By the way, it also meets military drop standards.
