Microsoft's Surface channel on YouTube has three new videos about the Surface Duo. The videos showcase the device's two screens and how experiences can span across the device. The first video shows composing an email, the second shows viewing content on OneDrive, and the third shows opening two browser windows at once.
The Surface Duo has a unique form factor that focuses on productivity. With it being different than any other device, Microsoft has to illustrate how the device having two screens can increase productivity.
Two screens are better than one
Microsoft delves into the future of foldables with an ambitious dual-screen device, featuring two ultra-thin 5.6-inch AMOLED displays bound by a 360-degree hinge. This pocketable inking-enabled Android smartphone marks the latest in the Surface lineup, geared for mobile productivity.

This phone is for me.
It does what I need most, it seems to let me stay productive on my travels.
I don't need it to have NFC, my smartwatch has it.
I don't need wireless charging at all.
My professional life takes place at airports, in planes, in hotels, at customer sites.
I'm not carrying a wireless charger around when all I need is a wall socket to plug in and top off.
The devil will be in the details once I spend a few weeks with it, but from what I saw so far, this is exactly what I have been waiting for.
