    Okay, I must've missed that one second of it. Glad that concern is put aside.

    Agreed. It’s a relief that it does use a pen, but without a good camera it’s not a smartphone candidate for me. I guess those who only care about selfies might go for it as their only phone?

    A shame. I got a little excited for a minute there.

    It'd be interesting if it was a camera dongle. That way it could be offered in a variety of grades.

    The Duo
    It's still a mock up. My guess is that it will have a complete compliment of cameras. I would not be surprised if most of us have Duos next Christmas. I better make out my list for 2020.

    Why on earth are people assuming it won't have a good camera?!

    On an expensive phone? Of course it will. That's not a technological barrier in 2019 and a poor camera takes you right out of the market.

    Oh? I can’t watch the video, internet too slow here, so I only know what I see in photos. Why would they show a non-functional mock-up and not bother to add a fake camera as well, if they intent to include one? I guess I’ll reserve judgment till a year or more from now when it actually gets produced.

    The itty-bitty Duo is an Android device though, with no mention of any Win10 compatibilty or x86 emulation. So for now.. I think not! :( Or were you talking about the Neo?

    Not a fan of android.

    Wonder if they can get the ARM version of windows running on it.
