    , yeah I find Apple's approach in playing safe boring. I mean it is good to have some reliable & optimized hardware (regular ipads) but that way there also would not be so many cool devices like the Windows market has (that Acer ezel hinge behemoth, zenbooks with a extra half screen, surface book, alienware area-51m etc). Still cannot really blame them, its what many people want I guess and many Android oems are not any better.

    All credit goes to @wytn who brought it to my attention in the thread that started it all.

    Brings a tear to my eye every time I watch it.

    I mean Panos loved his Surface Mini which fit Win8 like a glove, surely with the Neo/10X, he wouldn't let his baby die in his arms twice, right? :D

    If he still wants a Surface Mini, make half the Neo a one panel device and shipped the blasted thing, upgradable (downgradable?) to Windows 10X. Option to bolt on a hinge and second panel later. I could get down with that.

    Just puttin' that out there, Panos, old buddy....

    This sounds to me like what they already experimented with in preview builds - how in desktop mode they're just increasing the spacing on things when you disconnect the keyboard. I guess we're headed back to the Windows 7 tablet experience.

    But has MS officially announced the postponment of the Neo, though? Read somewhere that's it's still all speculation.

    This is me holding onto to the last straw of hope.

    Here's hoping the magnets hold the two halves together better than the magnet attaches the Surface Pen to a Surface device - I'm ALWAYS searching the bottom of the bag hoping the pen is still in there on and not somewhere behind me.

    If it’s an improvement over the huge center bezel of the Neo, but with all the promises that the Neo holds, screen size, hw kB interaction, etc. then I’d say, bring it on!
