Microsoft hosted an event in New York recently and from what I saw on Twitter, everyone was very impressed. In fact, it seems like Microsoft has produced more excitement with its family of devices than Apple has this year. With refreshed Surface Pros and Surface Laptops, a new Surface Pro X, the weird looking Surface Earbuds, and possibly the two most intriguing devices of the event, the Surface Duo and the Surface Neo, it sure does seem like 2019 and 2020 will be huge years for Microsoft.
I'm very intrigued by the Duo and Neo. While the concept is definitely not new - both smartphone and computer manufactures have delved into the dual-screen form factor in the past - it's still exciting to see Microsoft join the likes of Samsung, Huawei, and Asus among others in experimenting with traditional smartphone and laptop designs. What makes the Duo (the phone) even more intriguing is that it will ship with Android (mind = blown)! Microsoft hardware running Android? What alternate reality is this?
How did you like the event? Excited to see Microsoft's newest products? Any plans to buy anything? Maybe even those weird Surface Earbuds?
