    A few different views / perspectives on the new Android / ARM / Dual Display / X devices from Microsoft, check out the other links for more.

    I'm most interested in the small Android device, Windows is still too much of bin fire disaster to touch to add to new form factor tech, in the past it's always a disappointment.

    For me the first MS Tablets, MS Phone, etc are all regretful for everyone I've met that actually tried to use one day to day - with a few dediated fan's as exceptions. I am hoping it works out differently this time.

    Surface Duo first look: Microsoft's foldable Android phone

    The Verge
    Published on Oct 3, 2019
    Microsoft surprised us with the Surface Duo this week. It’s the long-awaited Surface phone that has been rumored for years, and in a further surprise, it’s running Google’s Android operating system. The Surface Duo has two 5.6-inch displays that fold out into a 8.3-inch overall screen, and it’s just 4.8mm thin.

    MSFT's foldable Android Phone is just a experiment and will be forgotten like WP. I won't buy any MSFT products aside from MSO and Windows.

    I agree with you for the past devices, but I think those new products are different and I'll give it a try.

    More foldable reviews, IDK I think I still like the double / dual screen "foldable" as I can do without the added worry of the screen splitting / wearing over time. Plus the large cost increase to "MacGyver" the hinge adds way too much to the entry price of those devices for me to venture into them. The added screen via case like the Asus ROG Phone or the LG dual screens match the available technology and minimize the cost while providing more usable screen area.

    Every other phone is dead to me. - Galaxy Fold Review

    While there have been unique smartphone designs out of China in the past couple years, the Samsung Galaxy Fold is the first device since maybe the iPhone 4 to really be a game-changer.


    Man, those screen "notch"'es all suck, that's one thing I wish would change in all phones. Even though the Samsung Note 10+'s small "dot" notch is the least intrusive - it still bugs me when I am watching full screen videos - using Netflix downloaded movies is awesome but that cutout "dot" sticks out such that even after you get used to it being there as soon as there is a scene change with a different contrast / brightness that dark "dot" pokes up into your eye.

    eh, I don't think the foldables will be around that long. It's just the current fad, hopefully...lol

    I'm waiting for the "Origami" foldables.

    The Motorola RAZR is back for 2020. The flip phone re-invented. With a bunch of catches.


    Motorola Razr first look: A foldable and flip phone in one

    Published on Nov 13, 2019
    Motorola's new foldable phone costs $1,500 and folds in half from top to bottom. We walk you through the screen, the specs and what it's like to use.


    OMG, even worse, it's got a giant notch. WTH? There's plenty of room on that device to put the notch-components. Free Our Screens!! Man that's gonna suck for watching video with that huge notch cut out. First thing I would think of when my eye gets poked out by that notch, "I paid $1500 for this... GIANT NOTCH!!??"
