Microsoft Surface Duo arrives

Techstination feature for Thursday, September 10, 2020

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        As of today…Microsoft is back in the mobile phone business…with the dual screen Surface Duo on sale…but VP Matt Barlow says….c’mon…don’t call it a phone.  It’s much more than that…a true mobile powerhouse..

“I even, like a lot of us do today, I join Teams meetings and if I’ve got to surf the Web on the side while I’m in that meeting I can do that across both screens now.   Even with a mobile device.”

The Surface Duo is designed to provide Microsoft 365 users with a great mobile experience…and because it is an Android device…there’s a first for Microsoft…lots of flexibility…and the dual screens give you lots of real estate for work or entertainment.     It’s an impressive device….with a price tag to match…starting at about 14 hundred dollars.   Missing from the picture…at least for now…is a 5G device option.
