I never was too crazy on those new magnetic iPad covers. I like mine more:

STM Skinny.

And, I don't know if a flex keyboard will work, but this one seems to, so
perhaps MS's will:

It sits over the screen though.

For mine, the keyboard/cover is the one really good idea that the Surface brings to the tablet space. Apparently the hinge arrangement is flexible enough to allow the cover to be folded to the back of the device, and when in this position the keys are disabled.

Perhaps Apple could counter with an Air with a touch screen and a removable keyboard that could be snapped over the back of the screen when not in use. Add in the ability to run virtualised iOS apps and I'll definitely buy one.
