B&H has a daily deal on the Microsoft Surface Duo where it's down to just $729.99 (opens in new tab). This is a uniquely low price, one of the best we've ever seen. Amazon is even having a sale (opens in new tab) on the Duo right now but can only drop as low as $745, which is $5 less than Microsoft (opens in new tab) but still not nearly as good as B&H's deal. It's a crazy low price considering this version of the Duo used to go for as much as $1,500 and still regularly sells for around $1,100. It's even better than the last deal we shared because this one is carrier unlocked, which means you can decide your SIM card and service plan on your own.
You get 256GB storage. The Duo has a 360-degree hinge with two screens so you can make the most out of all your apps, including video games and Microsoft 365. Battery lasts up to 15.5 hours and has Fast Charging.
Check out our initial review of the Duo that gave it 3 stars. Back then the operating system was a little rough and the price was a little too steep, but it showed great promise. It has continued to live up to that promise with regular updates that include things like integrating with Xbox Game Pass. Your video games take full advantage of the two screens with touch controls on one side and the game you're playing on the other. The most recent updates have provided a lot of stability improvements as well as bug fixes, making the whole system a lot more optimized. Microsoft even plans to upgrade the Duo to Android 11 later this year.
The two PixelSense Fusion displays have a pixel resolution of 2700 x 1800 total with 8.1-inch AMOLED panels. They're also made with Corning Gorilla Glass, which is designed to keep them safe from scratches and cracks.
The tablet is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 mobile platform processor, 6GB RAM, and has 256GB of storage. It even includes a fingerprint reader, LTE and Wi-Fi, 4k video recording at up to 60 fps, Fast Charging via USB-C, and a long-lasting battery life. The new tablet is covered by a one-year warranty from Microsoft.

He was there for the first Prime Day and has braved the full force of Black Friday. If you cut him, he bleeds savings. But don't try it for real. That's a metaphor.
Key word here is "unlocked", for those think you can get one for $500.
I wish they would stop these fire sales because they keep tempting me. I rally want one but I'm trying to hold out for the Duo 2. Hopefully that announcement is soon.
Still £1150 in the UK ($1600). Even more on Amazon.
Perhaps if they shipped a few more over here they might take off? I'd be tempted at £700 which is where you'd be after tax at $730
