Microsoft's new dual screen phone

November 17, 2019

Do you like working with two monitors? I do and of course our popular webmaster does also, so wouldn’t  it be nice to have a cell-phone with two screens? Samsung tried to introduce a foldable phone but it was not successful. Will Microsoft, who is planning to introduce a foldable phone next year, be more successful? This phone operates on the Android system and similar to other Microsoft products is confusingly called the Surface Duo. It has two 5.6-inch screens that unfold to 8.3 inches. The two screens can be used separately or as one screen. It is very durable and when Panos Panay, Microsoft’s chief product officer, was demonstrating the phone, he threw it on the ground to show that it could not be broken. It has a 360 degree hinge which makes it very versatile and its slimness enables it to sit comfortably in one’s pocket. Microsoft have partnered with Google, so The Surface Duo will be able to run apps from Google Play Store.

I have not yet heard what it is likely to sell at and will it woo those who are convinced that the iphone is the be all and end all? Somehow I doubt it. It’s like telling a diehard Labour supporter that he should vote National, or vice versa!
