Microsoft’s highly-rated Touch Cover accessory for its Surface tablets will drop from $119.99 to $79.99 starting from next week, according to reports.

Unnamed sources told Windows Phone Central that the new price will come into effect from August 30 and said that the price would be the same across the five different color Touch Covers (red, cyan, white, black and magenta).

However, sources suggested that Microsoft is not planning to discount the $129.99 limited edition Touch Covers or the $129.99 Type Cover accessory.

Microsoft has been making a lot of cuts with the Surface tablet family recently. The Redmond software giant reduced the price of the Surface RT tablet by $150 back in July and has since shaved $100 off the Intel-powered Surface Pro (although this offer only runs until August 29).
