    This one deserves :thumbsup::thumbsup:. We all lose sight of the fact that NASA would have KILLED for just one Duo/Note 20/iPhone 11 Pro in 1969!

    BTW: the one thing that hasn't changed all the much is how good the Nomad still sounds. Their engineers definitely had some special voodoo in the creation of the DSP and DAC.

    365 hinge and Office 365, coincidence I think not.

    Yesterday I read a comment about how the Duo can save people $11.99 per month on Youtube premium since you can have Youtube open on one screen and something else on the other.

    Haha nice. Personally I've been using side-by-side Safari instances on my iPad for the same purpose, but that gives me two portrait views. Being able to do this with two landscape oriented screens would be an improvement. :thumbsup:

    I always wanted that on my Dell Venue 8 Pro; hold it portrait mode and have a vertical split screen so I could have a video in landscape on top and another app on bottom. Now I want that for my iPad.

    , for Windows I heard this is possible through PowerTools / Fancy Zones (I think it can even be made touch friendly with a setting but not entirely sure).

    I guess it's too narrow for your uses, but can't you door that in Android on most phones in portrait? I'm hoping so in both orientations on my Note 20u.

    Lord, I am such an Android newbie idiot.

    Yep, I realized after posting that I used to do that on my Nexus 5X, with YouTube up top and another app below. The screen was a little small but it served a purpose. I think it will be much better on the Duo’s two screens.

    Thanks - hope my Note 20u will work that way, even if not dual screens. I sure would like to take notes in that bottom half.
