    Not a bad picture - I'd say about Samsung S9 or iPhone 8 by the looks of it.

    Well - did Neo and Duo just disappear - Windows Central. What's worse, MS is shifting Windows 10X to single screen first development!

    Note that if Neo slipped just one quarter... it would be "beyond 2020." And, apparently, Pegasus was always being conducted in tandem with dual-screen 10X.

    So I'm not sure that this is earth shaking news. Given the pandemic, some delay was inevitable, IMHO...

    If they really are refocusing on single screen devices first, that gives me pause. Guess it goes back to Thurrott's speculation that this was always a smoke screen for the real transition from Windows 10 to WIndows 10X in general.

    At this point, the Duo would have to be something really special to make me give up my Note 10. I could see my next device being a 5G Samsung Fold Note (assuming they invent one). The question I ask myself is, if I get one of them, would I keep the Go or replace it with a more powerful Windows device? Do I stay with a windows tablet as my main device if the fold works as a note-taker?

    BTW, I hope everyone is weathering this pandemic safely and securely.

    Too little, too late, too expensive. Samsung Note 20 5G, the Fold2 and similar devices will have this beat probably at a lower price point.

    But those are all different form factors. My only complaint against the Duo is the huge bezels. We'll see.

    I'm beginning to feel Surface Mini deja vu, designed, built and toss in the garbage pile before it hit the market. LG has a similar dual screen phone with better specs, not sure how well that's doing for less than $1k. I think the Fold2 and similar devices will be better form factors for an Android phone. As you said, we'll see.
