Detailed look at the internals and user experience of the new Microsoft Surface Duo and find out what sets it apart. Vineet Thuvara, Senior Director of Program Management for the Surface team, joins host Jeremy Chapman to share details on how Duo is the ultimate intersection of hardware and software experience.
It's the first dual-screen foldable device for Microsoft that combines the best of Surface's signature hardware design and Microsoft productivity experiences. It runs on top of an Android operating system, making it Microsoft's first Android device. At just 4.8 millimeters unfolded, it's the thinnest device in its category.
Duo is the perfect balance of productivity and mobility, similar in size to the footprint of your phone. We designed a foldable dual-screen device that is compact enough to fit in your pocket and can do everything a phone or portable smart device can do, plus much, much more.
