Surface Duo camera sample casts doubt on photography prowess

Surface Duo camera sample casts doubt on photography prowess

We have yet to see foldable phones, the one with single foldable screens, reach their full potential but they aren't the only novel devices consumers have been teased with. While not as revolutionary in terms of novel technology, dual-screen devices like the LG V60 ThinQ and especially the upcoming Microsoft Surface Duo offer a different solution to a slightly similar problem of screen space versus portability. While Microsoft is inspiring some confidence by pushing developers to prepare for that future, its latest teaser may be a disappointment to those who expect great things from the dual-screen Android phone.

Surface Go 2 specs are going to disappoint hopeful fans

Surface Go 2 specs are going to disappoint hopeful fans

Microsoft axed the Surface Mini, which turned out to be a real device, even before it saw the light of day. Four years later, it came out with a larger and very different Surface Go that was meant to be the company's on-the-go Windows solution and it was well-received, being compared with Apple's iPad Pro. It has taken Microsoft two years to come out with a successor but while the wait might finally be over, those hoping for a more decent upgrade will be sorely disappointed, at least based on these initial leaks.

Surface Duo phone “peek” feature leaked, prodding all other foldables

If there were a way to make Microsoft's efforts with software for the Surface Duo work on a device like the LG V60 ThinQ, it'd be great. The latest leak of the Microsoft Surface Duo shows a device that's on the cutting edge of feature functionality. It'll be like a book, opening with a pair of displays that run software that'll function sort of like a tablet, sort of like a phone, sort of like a laptop - but it's not out yet. This device is leaking with a steady drip, drip, drip.

Surface Duo live demo fails, stealth edit saves the future

Surface Duo live demo fails, stealth edit saves the future

Microsoft is taking a big risk with the Surface Neo and the Surface Duo. It revealed the devices more than a year before even developer kits would be available and it gave these developers a head start even before the dual-screen devices hit the market. Its most recent gamble, however, was to show unfinished software on unfinished hardware on stage. Unsurprisingly, the Surface Duo refused to cooperate but the magic of technology and video editing eventually gave what the public wanted: a glimpse of the future.

Surface Neo and Duo videos entice developers into a dual-screen world

It might have been easily overshadowed by Samsung's Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Z Flip reveals but Microsoft also had something sizzling for its own developers. At its Developer Day event, the company finally launched the much-awaited and much-needed Windows 10X emulator to get development rolling for the dual-screen Surface Neo. Apparently, it also had a pair of videos to whet developers' appetites about what they can accomplish with more than one screen.

Kensington Surface Go Docking Station is no Surface Studio Mini

Kensington Surface Go Docking Station is no Surface Studio Mini

Almost two years ago, computing accessory maker launched a rather interesting dock for the Surface Pro. Instead of a normal dock or even a dongle, the SD7000 turned the 2-in-1 tablet into a makeshift Surface Studio. After almost two years in the market, the smaller Surface Go is now also getting its own Kensington docking station but if you were expecting something like a mini Surface Studio Mini, you're unfortunately in for a very expensive disappointment.

Surface Duo and Neo will support existing apps but only on one screen

Surface Duo and Neo will support existing apps but only on one screen

While foldable phones like the Samsung Galaxy Fold, Huawei Mate X, and, soon, the Motorola Razr remain the dream of phone makers, consumers may be more interested in more practical and less costly solutions. We're still not sure if Microsoft's upcoming dual-screen devices are going to be any of those but, considering their Courier inspiration, the Surface Neo and Surface Duo have unsurprisingly generated a mix of excitement, curiosity, and also some skepticism. In its first public call to app developers, Microsoft is clearing the air by promising that existing apps will work on these unconventional devices but only if they don't want to offer a better experience on dual-screen tablets and phones.

Surface Pro X available now but buyers may want to hold off for now

The Surface Neo and the Surface Duo may have stolen Microsoft's event last month but those two won't be coming until late 2020 at the earliest. For more practical Surface users, the Surface Pro X is the one that brings the future here and now. That "now" is finally happening as Microsoft announces the availability of the latest ARM-powered Windows PC. Unfortunately, it seems that Microsoft still hasn't addressed the most important shortcoming of its Windows on ARM version.
