Ok so the Surface Duo isn’t available until late next year, but what do you guys think? should Apple be paying attention and create a similar device. I really got the feeling that Microsoft have been innovating with both the Duo and Neo. Could the Surface Duo give the iPhone a run for it’s money.

Personally I was surprised by how good that Microsoft ever was, but I was even more surprised by how much I’ve been attracted to the Surface Neo and Surface Duo. I do think Apple should Be paying attention, the Surface Duo is a new concept that could work well. I’m not going to say it’s an iPhone killer, but in my opinion it could be a great competitor. But I’ll see when the Duo and Neo release in Holiday 2020.

As an Apple fan, I have an iPad Pro, Mac, iPhone, Apple Watch and Airpods Pro. You could say I’m an Apple fanboy, but if I’m being attracted by the Surface Duo and Neo, are others also thinking the same?

I like it, and I will be picking one up. I was one of the last holdouts on Windows phone, so this is good news for me. Right now my Android phone is using Microsoft launcher.

Didn't they just release a new Microsoft launcher? the one that will be used on the Surface Duo. I'm holding out to see what happens with the Duo and Neo. It doesn't seem like Microsoft will be marketing the Duo as a phone replacement but it certainly seems like it may be able to do that.

I miss windows phone. I really don’t care for Android so while the duo looks awesome I won’t get it because it’s Android. Otherwise seems like a great device.

it does seem like a great device, I’m surprised Apple didn’t make something like it. I‘m looking forward to finding out more about it, not sure when details will start to come out but I’m looking forward too it.
