    Well, at least it folds the correct way... One more step forward.

    I'm really looking forward to eventually having a small phone-sized device that opens out into a large screen!

    That marketing mock-up image is just odd.

    I think it's supposed to look a bit 3D (possibly the Cliffs of Moher?). In order to look like that, it'd have to be an anamorphic image on the flat screen, designed to be viewed from only this angle. Just feels wrong, a bit "uncanny valley".

    Otherwise, cool tech if the folding ever works reliably.

    Having just Googled the Cliffs of Moher, several images look just like that. I think it's merely the placement and angles of the device frame that make it look like it's 3D, rather than anything MS have done intentionally.

    Hmmm... this all sounds very 2009.

    Didn't they have the Microsoft Courier in development back then... cancelled by that genius Steve Ballmer.

    It's only taken a decade to revisit the idea...
