Here's what Surface Duo doesn't have:— Zac Bowden (@zacbowden) August 12, 2020
Microsoft says it was focused on the Surface Duo's fundamentals, which includes form factor and OS experience. It wanted to build a good Surface before building a good phone with V1: https://t.co/jpscBUPWkd
it doesn't compete with iPhone, imho. as a phone, its camera and other specs are not up to snuff. it's more of a mini PC (almost)— Mary Jo Foley (@maryjofoley) August 12, 2020
. @Surface Duo represents our vision for the next wave of mobile productivity. It brings together the power of Microsoft and the full ecosystem of Android apps into one device, with two screens that fits in your pocket. Pumped for you to check it out. https://t.co/A6LQY6FArl— Panos Panay (@panos_panay) August 12, 2020
Hm my last two Duo Tweets belie the fact that I’m actually really excited to try it out. I love the concept of it and the industrial design looks great to me, bezels and all.— Dieter Bohn (@backlon) August 12, 2020
It’s really going to come down to execution on those ideas.
Available for preorder in the US today, Surface Duo brings together the power of Microsoft 365 experiences and the full ecosystem of Android mobile apps into one device, with two screens that you can take anywhere.

I really like the notion of shortcuts to launch app combos on either screen, like calendar and email. I’m never first to the party for this sort of tech, but I’m eager to see what this dual screen form factor looks like in a couple generations. https://t.co/MDmH965NRO— Jon Jones (@jonjones) August 12, 2020
It’s rare to design for new form factors. I sat down with Deepak Menon to discuss the research & design behind Office on Surface Duo (available for preorder today!). Here’s how we’ve been using Duo in our own lives, and an invite to help shape the future of dual-screen experience https://t.co/mdKQeEgsZP— Jon Friedman (@designjon) August 12, 2020
"At $1,399, Microsoft's Surface Duo is tragically overpriced"— Paul Thurrott (@thurrott) August 12, 2020
I have nothing to add to this.
Microsoft and phones have one thing consistent..... They are always late and outdated on arrival.— Ashish Mohta (@ashishmohta) August 12, 2020
Surface Duo has the same vibe as the original v1 Surface devices Arm & Intel. I suspect there was some buyers remorse for the people that bought into that V1. At least they don’t need to worry about Apple drowning them out.— Michael Gartenberg (@Gartenberg) August 13, 2020
