Microsoft's Surface Duo is finally here. After months of anticipation, announcements, video teases, and rolled out review periods, the foldable device from Microsoft is finally available to the public. The Surface Duo starts at $1,400 and is available at physical stores and online.

One lucky person on the Surface Duo subreddit already received their Surface Duo from AT&T. Others have notifications stating that their Surface Duo will arrive at some point today. Unfortunately, at least some people have received word that their device won't arrive today, though it's hard to tell how common that is at this point.

The Surface Duo is a highly anticipated device, thanks to its unique form factor. It's the first-ever mobile Surface device and is the first mobile device that Microsoft has made in years. Reviews for the Surface Duo will be up today, so keep an eye out to see our complete thoughts.

  • Rubino! Zac finished editing and rendering the review video last night! What's my review?! Deliver it now or be destroyed!
  • Where is the review?
  • Mine got delayed by Best Buy, even though I ordered weeks ago... :(
  • 🤣 🤣 Also anxiously waiting for the review
  • I'm just waiting for Dan's Windows Central review. I expect to order one immediately, but need some confirmation that its known (and possibly unknown) deficiencies won't prevent this from replacing my current phone. I can struggle past the missing Qi charging (that's probably the biggest problem for me personally), but I need to know that the camera is at least "good enough" that this can be my only device. Also curious about the equivalent to a Glance feature -- I read somewhere that it has no always-on display option. That would be bad, especially for a device that has a built-in tent mode, and a serious downgrade from my current Samsung.
  • I'm finding it odd that I can't find a single review for the thing
  • It's under embargo until some unknown time today (Sep 10).
  • I watched Windows Weekly last night. MaryJo said that all reviews will hit at 9:00 am.
  • Mine has shipped and will be here today by 8pm. Gonna be a long day.
  • Gonna try to pick one up from the AT&T store today, if they have it in stock.
    Preorders never worked for me. Always took several days after launch to get it.
  • impatiently watching it on the fedex tracker
  • Yep, same here. My package went north from KY to IN - like WTHeck (I'm in FL)?!?! That wasted close to 8hrs of transit time. Now waiting for it to update from "at local facility" to "out for delivery". On the other hand, dBrand still shows my order in "pre-order" status with no update or timeline - so I won't be receiving it today. #1stWorldProbs ;)
  • Not a single AT&T store within 100 miles of my location has the Duo in stock.
    That's one way to ruin a launch.
  • Mine hasn't arrived yet but it's supposed to be on the FedEx truck for delivery. Fingers crossed that no mishaps happen. FedEx usually rolls through my complex around lunchtime so here's hoping! Cannot wait.
