Does the keyboard have to be connected to type.
Sometimes I find it helpful with my ipad, to leave the ipad on my desk and type on my separate bluetooth keyboard on my lap. All the commercials I have seen for the surface show people typing on the keyboard cover while it is connected physically to the tablet. Can you still type on the keyboard cover via bluetooth while it is physically separated from the tablet portion?

I was told that there was/is an option that you can buy a blue tooth adaptor that hooks onto the keyboard that would allow you to use your keyboard as a "wireless keyboard"
Basically the tech guy who sold me my surface said only boy it if you don't want to be restricted to typing withe keyboard attached to the Surface.

Thank you for your post. What was previously mentioned is correct, the Touch and Type Cover needs to be connected to Surface in order to function. If you prefer to use a Bluetooth keyboard or mouse, Surface does have Bluetooth technology as well!
I hope this is helpful to you.

In order to use either the touch or type keyboard, it must be physically connected (attached) to the tablet.
