What you need to know
- Microsoft today has brought the Surface Duo to ten new countries.
- These include Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.
- This expansion is aimed at business customers.
Alongside the announcement of the new Surface Laptop 4 today, Microsoft also announced an expansion of the Surface Duo in an additional ten European markets. Announced via the Microsoft blog, these include Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.
As reported by Windows Central, Microsoft's Microsoft's Pete Kyriacou said:
Microsoft had earlier brought the Duo to the UK and Canada last year. Even though the hardware platform that powers the device is a tad outdated (meaning no 5G), the novel form-factor is still one-of-a-kind, for better or worse.
Reviewing the Surface Duo when it first launched, Android Central's Daniel Bader concluded:
The device was also panned for the presence of bugs, though Microsoft has addressed those with post-launch updates. The Duo will also get Android 11 sometime in the summer, with no word of an Android 12 release yet.
It's not a perfect phone, but at the very least, for European businesses who want to invest in foldables, Microsoft's Surface Duo is now an option.
