What you need to know

  • A new Surface Duo commercial is out that features Katelyn Ohashi.
  • Ohashi is a gymnast whose floor routine went viral when she earned a perfect score.
  • The Surface Duo is discounted to $1,200 through the Microsoft Store.

Katelyn Ohashi knows a thing or two about balance and flexibility. Ohashi is an incredible gymnast who went viral when her floor routine earned a perfect 10.0 in 2019. Now, she's featured in a new commercial for the Surface Duo, which is a folding device that delivers balance and flexibility in the palm of your hand.

In the commercial, Ohashi drags leotard options from one window into Outlook and looks through Pinterest while listening to Spotify. She does all that while doing a handstand. Buying a Surface Duo won't turn you into a gymnastic phenom, but it can flip, fold, and twist into several postures itself.

The Surface Duo launched a few months ago, and since its release, has received several updates. Our executive editor Daniel Rubino recently re-reviewed the Surface Duo and breaks down if those updates add up to a substantial change for the device.

The Surface Duo is on sale right now through the Microsoft Store and Best Buy for $1,200, which is the lowest price that we've ever seen it at. Microsoft frequently discounts the Surface Duo down to this price, so if you'd like to grab one, make sure to do it while it's discounted.
