I am thinking of a touch type cover with the magnets in the middle a stiff side for the back and the keyboard in front like usual. Not only would it protect the back but you could then use the surface on your lap easier. That seemed to be one of four major complaints with the Surface and you think something like this would be obvious.
Why doesn't this exist?

I would say it does not exist because 1) not very many people actually care, and 2) it sounds clunky and cumbersome - contrary to the whole idea behind the touch cover. As for news of a battery - what battery? That is a rumor founded upon nothing of substance and applies to a mythical future accessory for the Surface Pro.

Thanks for the visual; I couldn't completely understand your concept at first. I think it is an interesting idea for an additional battery and case protector.
I was watching a review and the commentator demonstrating how you couldn't effectively use the Surface on your lap with the keyboard. My thought was: it's a tablet, take the keyboard off. Your solution would make him happy.

I kind of like your idea. I do a lot of lap typing, and sometimes reach for my Chromebook because it's hard to balance the surface/Type cover on my lap. And I like that your concept protects the back.
What I would really like is something similar to the Clamcase or Crux Case, when the Surface would fit into a hinged lid. Kind of like the way other tablets have a keyboard dock with a hinge.

I thought of this idea as well (not trying to take it away from you), but I think unless it has some type of lock at the hinge, it would still be flimsy on your lap. It will still either bend back or forth as you're moving your legs about.
