For those that have been following all of the hoopla surrounding Windows 10X, we've got some more bad news to deliver today. Back in May, Microsoft offered a one-two gut punch to Windows enthusiasts, announcing that the dual-display Surface Neo had been delayed and that Windows 10X would initially only be offered on single-display devices. “These single-screen devices will be the first expression of Windows 10X that we deliver to our customers, and we will continue to look for the right moment, in conjunction with our OEM partners, to bring dual-screen devices to market,” wrote Microsoft Surface chief Panos Panay at the time. Today, Microsoft insider Mary Jo Foley is reporting... Read more...
The coronavirus/COVID-19 is not just causing immense pain and suffering around the globe due to the heartbreaking loss of life. It has also stunted the development of many projects from well-known companies due to shelter-in-place orders that have been ordered in many states across the U.S. The latest [tech] victims include Microsoft’s highly anticipated Surface Neo and its complementing Windows 10X operating system. In a blog post today, Panos Panay, who now serves as the Chief Product Officer for Windows and Devices, in a roundabout way confirmed the news that we first heard early last month: Surface Neo has been delayed. Panay first revealed that Microsoft is shifting its focus... Read more...
One of the most exciting things that Microsoft has been working on in recent times is its Windows 10X operating system and the new devices it was expected to bring with its launch. A report is going around that Microsoft Chief Product Officer Panos Panay has been informing some of his team this week that Microsoft won't be delivering its Surface Neo dual-screen Windows 10X devices during the 2020 calendar year as previously announced. The report also says that Panay went so far as to say that Microsoft wouldn't be allowing any third-party dual-screen Windows devices to ship with the operating system in calendar year 2020. The new priority at Microsoft is to get Windows 10X on single-screen devices... Read more...
Back in early October, Microsoft gave us a first taste of its Surface Neo dual display folding PC. In a way, the Surface Neo reveal was the culmination of a decade of anticipation that started when Microsoft's initial Courier concept first leaked. The Surface Neo makes use of two displays that can fold rather than a single, flexible display (a la the ThinkPad X1 Fold). As such, customers will have new and innovative ways to interact with the device, which necessitates the use of the new Windows 10X operating system. Windows 10X is specifically designed to accommodate dual screen and folding displays. For those that want to see what Windows 10X has in store, Microsoft has made available... Read more...
Yesterday, Microsoft unloaded a bevy of updates to its Surface family including the refreshed Surface Pro 7, the Surface Laptop 3 (with a new 15-inch variant), and the all-new Surface Pro X. The company also gave us a glimpse at two products that will launch in 2020: the Surface Neo and the Surface Duo. We were able to get hands on the former three products and have some images that we'd like to share of them all below. At the same time, we'll give you a quick overview of what each has to offer. Surface Pro 7 This is largely a minor refresh to the Surface Pro 6 that launched last year. It features the same chassis design as its predecessor, with the exception of a USB-C port that has been added... Read more...
Remember the Courier concept that leaked from Microsoft over a decade ago? It has finally manifested itself into a real product that Surface Chief Panos Panay announced today called the Surface Neo. The Surface Neo features dual 9-inch displays covered in Gorilla Glass that are joined together with a central 360-degree hinge. That hinge, which features micro-gears with an innovative torque system, allows the device to contort into a number of various positions based on what your current workload is like. You can use it as a dual-screen device; you can it with just a single display; you can use it in tent mode; and you can even slap on a Bluetooth keyboard that magnetically attaches to the bottom...
