    Re: Microsoft announces Windows dual-screen preview SDKs

    I'm quite looking forward to these and I suspect my next phone will be a surface duo...given that there is nothing exciting so far about this year's devices from the other major manufacturers (leaks so far show they all still have holes in their screens for some stupid reason) I will be waiting a while before upgrading my S9.

    Shall have to download the emulator and have a play

    Faster than WIN+S? But that is only milliseconds anyway... at least on my machines.

    Not sure what the benefit really is....

    Yea, that's bizarre. I think its specifically the search results. Not saying that is really all that slow either.

    I DEMAND AN ENTIRE SCREEN DEDICATED TO EMOJIS! This mere HALF a screen to express my emotions like a kids cartoon character is a DISGRACE.

    More interested in the neo than the duo (it has some usability issues as a 'phone') but I wouldn't say no to seeing a single screen phone from MS running android like the duo.
