Dog-fooding the Duo!

Published by at

Announced at the back end of last year, the Surface Duo certainly seems ripe for release at some point before 'Holidays, 2020', despite COVID-19, as evidenced from various people using it - developers, and Microsoft staff, with VP Brad Anderson shown below with his family, apparently doing 'work' and colouring in Peppa Pig at the same time. Ahem. Still, good to see the device out and about again, and very much looking forward to trying it for real.

The device itself doesn't seem to have changed much - which is good, since it means that Microsoft is not still finalising the design. On the flip side, this means significant internal bezels (though you have to hold it somewhere, etc.) and a single internal camera of limited thickness. This last isn't the end of the world, since when the screens are flipped around then one can be the viewfinder while the other side hosts the (now) rear-facing camera. It'll not be a camera monster, but with some decent software then it'll be fine for Office Lens scanning, casual snaps, video-conferencing, and so on.

Here's Brad's original tweet:

Any more Surface Duo sightings I should know about?
