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.

Get your hair dryer ready...!
i got mine . its white marble with the red blue green yellow logo .
Yeah, the Duo will turn heads with two screens. Just like tin foil hats in the coffee shop or the restored boxcar AMC Matador your dad has in the garage. But, just joking. What does the Otterbox protective case look like [chortle]?
Maybe I sound sensationalist, but I see this as a VERY big deal. Accessory support from a big brand like this says that Microsoft is really putting forth an effort to give a good experience to its users. Accessory support on Windows phones was generally spotty or poor. I had wondered about dbrand skins specifically yesterday, along with third-party case options. I like that Microsoft has this working for it.
Absolutely agree. Lumias always lacked support from mobile accessory OEMs. This is already a sign of progress on the overall ecosystem.
Not that tough for them to make a skin though. dbrand even makes them for AirPower, a product that doesn't exist. I'm sure they don't have to invest a lot in making a skin for something like this. BTW, they have a sense of humor. You have to read the marketing text for their Apple Card skin. https://dbrand.com/shop/apple-card-skins?utm_mnsid=UUwpUdUcU79587
Seeing it next to those two fork lifts, it's a much bigger device than I thought.
If I get the Duo I'm just going to cut my own skin
I have a t-shirt and hoodie from WC that were released some years back with the Microsoft logo in the new Surface colours at the time, i.e. two squares in platinum, one in cobalt blue and one in burgundy. I'd love to be able to skin the logo on a Duo like that. The site does mention creating a multicolour logo but not seeing how to do it anywhere.
Ordered Titanium skin with Black Matrix logo - but for some reason Titanium is no longer available via the link in this article...
I noticed a lot of the original choices are no longer available.
I wanted to order the Hyperblack Titanium, but when I went to order it, the choices were limited. I emailed them about it and this is the response I got:
"Thanks for getting back to us, and apologies for the misunderstanding. While the materials themselves have not been removed, we've opted for a more curated release of materials for the Surface Duo based on customer demand. At this point in time, we don't have any plans to expand the materials available for the Surface Duo. We do apologize for the inconvenience and we appreciate your support!" Seems weird to remove materials based on the demand of a product that isn't even available, yet.
I have been trying to order but my order would not go through. I kept on getting an error saying my address or cvv or card # is incorrect even thou all info is correct. I think the link is not working. Once my card was charged and refunded right back by dbrand.
