    And that looks...somewhat complicated, I’m guessing that case doesn’t seem to be friendly to those hoping to keep it in reverse fold. And the pen loop looks like its designed for the regular surface pen and not the slim pen, which is smart given the lack of anyway to charge it. As a table it def seems doable, but for a phone...just imagine trying to unfold that thing every time you here the ping for a text message or if someone calls you.

    So no Duo yet for me, but it's back to being "out for delivery"

    I did notice that there are major updates to outlook, one drive and my phone in the play store this morning. Haven't dug in to yet as I'm seeing the updates offered on our Tab S6, but a quick launch of outlook shows a different background...

    The new Kindle App also show's as available. BTW: the ne kindle app also takes advantage of the foldable screen on the Fold 2

    Good find - the article references the original Gizmodo disclosure of the Courier ELEVEN YEARS AGO:

    "It feels like the whole world is holding its breath for the Apple tablet. But maybe we've all been dreaming about the wrong device. This is Courier, Microsoft's astonishing take on the tablet." Look familiar?

    The glass half empty vote is in...

    FedEx tells me it's on the truck, arriving by 8:00PM. Apparently, my credit card got charged when it went on the delivery truck; the card hadn't been charged while the box was flying here from KY.

    Irony of ironies, the display panels in the Duo are manufactured by Samsung ....

    And they are superb BTW
