The SURFACE has been redesigned to make it even better and still kept the sleek design you have come to know and love. The SURFACE features an amazingly thin, shock absorbent TPU inner layer that completely encases your phone and features our Hex guard technology that provides extra cushioning during impact. An outer Polycarbonate layer slides into place, like our original SURFACE design, protecting against scratches and abrasions while our signature soft-touch coating gives an elegant look and feel to the device. The SURFACE offers an unmatched combination of durable protection, sleek design, and elegant finish. The built-in metal kickstand can be used in landscape orientation for a hands-free experience when viewing multimedia, managing photo slideshows, and displaying clocks and calendars. The SURFACE with Metal Kickstand does not support the device in portrait orientation.
