New Delhi: One of the major features of Microsoft's Surface tablet, apart from the new operating system, is its key accessory, the Touch Cover, which features an integrated keyboard. However, early adopters of the tablet who have this accessory are facing some issues with the Touch Cover where it splits at the seams, exposing some of its internal wiring in the process.

A report by The Guardian states that early users of the Touch Cover of Microsoft's Surface tablet say one of the edges that magnetically connect to the device split at the seam, and this case has been witnessed by a number of users a few days after they started using it.

The fact that users in the US and the UK have reported the problem suggests that it is not isolated to a single manufacturing batch.
