What is the Surface Duo?
The Surface Duo is an Android-powered dual-screen device from Microsoft that has built-in support for Microsoft 365 (the productivity cloud from Microsoft) and has a unique 360-degree hinge that enables multiple "postures" for device usage. I am writing a series of posts about it here if you want to learn more.
Or check out my sketchnote below for an overview.
Am I excited about Surface Duo?
Yes, yes I am!! This is the first-generation device so obviously we will learn a lot from having the device out there in the real-world. But the reason I am excited about it is that it represents a change in how we are thinking about mobile device "affordances" (design capabilities) and gives us a chance to rethink what a mobile experience could be. Plus, I love the fact that we can develop for the device using native apps (Android) or multi-platform frameworks (Xamarin, React-Native) or mobile web!
What kinds of ideas can we think about here?
I'm starting to play with the SDK and device, but I want you to think about three things that might be interesting:
If this sounds interesting - come join my Table Talk session at Microsoft Ignite. We're talking about "Why We're Excited To Be a Developer Right Now" and I can't wait to learn more about your ideas for dual-screen apps!
