    As the title says, and we don't care that the keyboard is bigger than the SP2.

    Looking for basic keyboard and touchpad functionality. If so, special drivers needed on SP2?

    <<...Looking for basic keyboard and touchpad functionality...>>

    ...Yes, it does. I typed some sample sentences in Word and tried basic pointing and two-finger scrolling on the touchpad. Basic functioning seems to work.

    Of course, probably because of the size mis-match, closing the Pro 3 Type Cover on the Pro 2 does not cause the Pro 2 to go to sleep. But you can always use the I/O button, which is what I do...

    The Surface 3 cover works on the Surface 2 and viceversa.
    The cover is quite abit larger, but if you do not close it, then it
    does not matter.
    The mouse pad on the Surface 3 cover is aot nicer and the
    keys now light up. But, there is no magnet to prop up the
    keyboard. Put something under like a dowl and it is now
    propped up...
