    MS is about to sell dual screen devices to the tune of One Millllion Dollars!

    Thanks to writing my juicy rationalization for going Samsung this morning for all of you, I've changed my order to get the 128gb Note 20u - already have a 512gb EVO card; saves me another $150; and Samsung always gives the same model the same trade-in discount regardless of memory, so next year's trade in on the Fold 3 with S Pen should be the same...

    Speaking of, Best Buys already has the Note 20 and 20u on display demo (No Surface Duo or Tab S7+ yet) I was initially more interested in the regular Note 20, but even though it doesn't have the curve screen, the device still has curved edges and doesn't make too much of a difference feeling wise, after playing with them both, the 20u with its 120hz screen refresh won me over. But the camera bump and overall thickness of both somewhat concern me. The camera bump aside, while they don't look thicker then my Note 9, they definitely feel thicker.

    Coming from an iPhone X and iPhone 11 Pro background, the Note 20 (either model) is a monster, and it looks like Quasimodo even in the best of light. In fact, there are only two hangups for me on this adventure: (1) the sheer size of the Note 20u, and (2) whether my family lynches me for leaving the walled garden...

    The thing that interests me about the camera is that Microsoft provides (what I assume to be) the sensor pixel size... 1.0 µm. That's a pretty small pixel. I've been doing some research to see what the implications of that are, but so far I haven't turned up much. However, the pixel size does suggest that the camera may not have very good low-light capabilities as already speculated by some of the early reporting...

    I have very low expectations for the camera. This thing is all about dual screen productivity, camera be damned.
