well, i've had my share of collecting habits. but spending $1400+ on something, when
i already have a device that works seems odd.
especially, if i kept telling people that i'm not getting something.
on the other hand, if it gets a discount later on, or if it does live up to some of the hype,
it might be more appealing, and your guard may be let down.
2 other people agreed about it.
i have always said, i would NEVER own IOS devices (and i've never owned anything by apple),
except for 2 things, a mac quadra donated to me, which i got rid of, and another later mac,
which i also got rid of.) i also told myself i would never own an ANDROID device, and i still
don't own anything that uses it.
if i did get a duo, it would be a first. and i've stated that i would lke to get one at some point.
as sean connery said, 'never say never'.
Not around here...
There's no way this could fail as hard as Windows RT, or be as costly as writing down $900MM worth of unsold Surface RT inventory. I imagine MS will make a very small initial run of Duo's then adjust production and distribution to match demand.
so what do the 3 people that called it win.
or is this still a wait and see.
Haha awesome. The TPCR community in a nutshell.
I should have been more honest with @negative1 - around here it is more like:
i'm the opposite. i usually buy ancient retro technology just because its dirt cheap.
i'm in the middle of resurrecting two HP TC-1100 tablets as we speak, and just bought
the 80G samsung PATA drives to image for them and windows tablet PC to put on there.
yes, i actually use them on a month to month basis. along with motion computing tablet,
and my fujitsu is getting tons of use as retro gaming emulation machine.
i remember getting the nokia 810 several years ago for cheap, and thought it
was pretty amazing even after it was outdated.
maybe 10 years from now, i'll buy a duo for $100-$200 just to see what it was like.
And just like that, Samsung just dstraussed their entire Note customer base and handed the Surface Duo line millions of new buyers for years to come.
Yes, I know dstrauss will now buy one. *crystal ball emoji*
Can't wait for the 'Will Dale Own a Galaxy Fold 3 with S-pen' thread...
