    That being said, Edge Chromium on Android is not nearly as good as Edge Chromium on PC. No extensions, for example (other than two built in). And if you try connecting Edge Android to a larger screen than a phone, it still works like a mobile browser, not like a desktop one. I was hoping that as they get further in Edge Chromium PC that some of this stuff would filter down to Android... but it doesn't appear to be happening.

    Aren’t all iOS browsers WebKit and not Chrome?

    I am so jealous. I never should have sold mine.

    That's what I was getting at, the current Edge browser is gimped on Android ad is very feature poor compared to Chrome.

    What they should (I hope) is do what Apple does with Safari which is very close functionality use between MacOS and IOS

    Early next year, on whenever, MS NEEDS to show Minecraft running on this device. Controls on one screen, game on the other, or something like that. When MS first purchased MC I started screaming as I thought that they'd release a version for Windows Mobile. Nope.

    "Panos Panay spoke a bit more about Surface Duo and Surface Neo and revealed some extra details about the upcoming foldable devices. As noted by WinFuture (via Windows Central), the Surface chief said that both Neo and Duo will feature a “good camera,” but no support for 5G support at launch."

    Why am I not surprised. We should be thankful it even has a cellular modem, shouldn't we...

    It is IRRELEVANT that even by Christmas 2020 there may not be extensive 5g coverage - this is just a one-off from refusing to adopt Thunderbolt 3. He @JoeS - what were your tech buys this year - again please?

    <<...this is just a one-off from refusing to adopt Thunderbolt 3...>>

    ...Don't agree. The current state of 5G, both the chip set and the cell transceivers, should make anyone suspicious of how long it will take to get a reasonable amount of service in a reasonable number of places. Like the Surface Pro, I think that Microsoft will be better off starting slow with the Duo before jumping into the black hole that is 5G...
