What you need to know

  • Some consumers are wondering where Duo 2's promotional efforts have been.
  • Microsoft is attempting to answer that query with a new series of Duo 2 promo videos.
  • The first video in the series will show you how to get the Duo 2 out of its box, how to insert a SIM card, and other essential operating steps.

Fresh off the big Surface Duo 2 December update, Microsoft has a promotional video series kicking off. The first part of it, entitled "Microsoft Surface Duo 2 | Getting started" reiterates that the Duo 2 is a premium device and spends time showing you how to remove it from its box, where the SIM card goes, what to do if you're migrating from an iPhone, and more.

The five-minute video promises more installments to come, so if this kickoff was up your alley, prepare yourself for additional content over on the Surface YouTube channel, wherein all good Surface video content is found.

Microsoft's video highlights items that Surface Duo 2 aficionados are already intimately familiar with, but in case you're considering grabbing the device, it may be worth a watch.

If you're wondering what the Surface Duo 2 received in its year-end 2021 December patch, be sure to check out the full rundown linked up above. Duo 2 owners can expect a 258MB update that cleans up a variety of existing concerns with the product as well as adds a few bits and baubles to make the overall device experience better than ever.

In other words, it's an exciting time for Duo 2. Duo 1 owners may not have as much buzz swirling around, but they're not down and out either—after all, December isn't over yet.
