    So, for comparison purposes, this is an SDuo OG and the iPad Mini 6/Air/2021:

    In split screen mode as shown, the
    - SDuo screens are ~113mm x 85mm each
    - iPM6 screens are ~117mm x 87mm each.

    How many hours did it take to set up the split screens on iPM6?

    <<...Is that in reference to using it with the Duo or generally?..>>

    @mgerbasio : In general; the Duo is completely innocent.

    Despite years of complaints and corresponding assurances that it would be fixed, the cell signal strength at my home is seldom better than one bar, and sometimes no bars. It's bad enough that I have to pay for a land line because of the possibility of an emergency.

    I've considered changing providers but there's no assurance that they would be any better; I've discovered that coverage maps are mostly fiction, especially in heavily forested areas.

    Great work @Bishop! With this, I'd rather have the Duo 2 that I can find and pocket easily.

    Interesting comparison @Bishop . So, is the mini what MS was trying to achieve with the Duo, once open? Can both halves act as a single screen like the fold? I never see it demonstrated like that.

    Is there a GPS in the OG Duo? How is the display outside?

    Yes, there's the screen spanning mode. Basically drag the app to the center line and it spans both screens.
