We're back with another exciting episode of the Windows Central Podcast, and this week, we know significantly more about Windows 10X now thanks to a presentation by Microsoft for developers this week. In addition to the Galaxy Book S, The foldable Z Flip has caught the eye of both Daniel and Zac.

MWC 2020 has been cancelled, but Microsoft has promised to deliver news from their planned presentation at some point in the future. Sony's PS5 may have a hard time competing with pricing on Xbox Series X because of DRAM pricing.

This episode of the Windows Central Podcast was recorded on February 14th 2020.

  • Thanks for a great summary of what was presented about 10X. You have been talking about this development for a very long time. That is a credit to your journalism accuracy. Do you know if 10X supports Miracast (e.g. wireless monitors)? Does it support telephony; and if not, is there plans to add telephony? Will the file system support Windows Shortcuts (small files that are links to a resource)? Will the Taskbar support Toolbars?
  • Samsung Flip... Oh Lord! The way you two go on about people you don't agree with... It'd be less sad if you weren't so wrong. No, most girls don't keep their smartphone in the trouser pockets. And even if they did, it wouldn't be easier with a phone twice as thick as a regular phone. Speaking of which, a phone that folds doesn't become smaller; it stays exactly the same size. Shorter but bulkier, of which the latter means more in regards to pocketability. For sheer volume, a foldable phone will likely be slightly larger than it had to be due to the folding mechanism. And why does it fold? You don't get a bigger screen, and there's no need to protect the display. All you get is a phone that needs to be opened every time you want to use it...
