Surface Docking Station in the Microsoft Store

Microsoft is making the Surface Docking Station available today in the Microsoft Store, despite the company told customers to wait until next year to get the docking and Power Cover.

As reported by Mary Jo Foley from ZDNet, the company is letting people to order the docking station, including the option for overnight shipping.

The Docking Station is available for Surface Pro and Surface Pro 2, it allows users to lock the tablet in place and expand the device peripheral inputs.

Besides of the dock being able to charge the Surface while in use, it features several ports to get more work done, including: a display port, audio input/output jack, Ethernet port, and USB 3.0 and three USB 2.0 ports.

Although, this is a great accessory for pro users, the docking station for Surface isn’t cheap, it cost $199.99. And yes, you can even attach your keyboard while the device is docked.

The Power Cover for Surface Pro, Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2, won’t be released today, as far as I know it will be available next year.

The news follows the recent Surface 2 launch and Microsoft announcement another price cut to the Surface Pro line.
