You Can Now Preorder the New Microsoft Surface Pen for $99.99

The 12.3in screen can be operated either by hand or by using a new, separately sold Surface Pen, or the Surface Dial, designed for the large Surface Studio computer. Then again, the Pencil only comes in white.

According to The Verge, the pen costs $99.99, and for now, it appears that only the platinum version is available. At the moment it seems that only the platinum finish is available for pre-order with a release date set for the 15th of June, with the other colors listed as "coming soon".

French President Macron meets Russian President Putin
His invitation to the Russia leader was a surprise after the tough stance on Russia Mr Macron took during the French election. On Syria, Putin underlined the importance of securing the Syrian state, adding that it's essential for combatting terrorism.

That being said, Microsoft is touting the accessory as being more than just your standard stylus. It can also handle tilting, which lets users share like they would with a pencil.

Back to the U.S., we should mention the old Surface Pen is still around, priced at $59.99 in silver, black, dark blue and gold. The new Surface Pros support it, and Microsoft plans to add the functionality to existing Surface Studio desktops and Surface Books later this year. Apple has beat that, though, with its faster 20ms latency, which will no doubt pair well with the company's new faster "ProMotion" 120Hz display refresh rate.
