The Microsoft Surface Duo is a dual-screen Android-powered smartphone/mobile device that sold for $1400 when it launched last fall, despite having somewhat dated specs including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. But now Microsoft is selling the Surface Duo with 128GB of storage for $650 (or you can pay an extra $50 for a 256GB model).
Meanwhile, if you missed out on picking up a tablet during Prime Day, there are still some almost-as-good deals to be found. Among other deals, you can snag a refurbished Amazon Fire HD 8 for $50 or a Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 10.4″ for $180.

Interesting how the Surface phone runs Android instead of a Microsoft OS like Windows Phone. I guess this means Metro Tiles are finally dead.
It’s because Microsoft doesn’t have a viable smartphone operating system, and they’ve given up wasting money trying to make it happen.
What I do not get is that Microsoft is the biggest software company in the world but they did not write apps for their own phone OS to make it viable.
The real deal of the day is buying awesome Pokemon cards at Pokeflip at a cheap price: https://pokeflip.com/
Thats a good price for the Surface Duo. That’s certainly in line with the value that I would put on that phone.
It’s a Shame that Microsoft isn’t offering the same value on their Canadian store. It’s only on sale for $940 CAD, which is around $770 USD. Still a good sale, but not cheap enough for me to commit to not having access to 5G for the next 2 years.
Hopefully this pricing is a sign of better value to come in future versions?
Likewise on the UK store. Currently £250 off for a final price of £1150. That’s 1600 USD. That’s way too much but if it were as discounted as it is on the US store I’d consider it.
I want to avoid saying “it should have Windows, not Android”, because Android really was the right operating system for it as a smartphone.
However, if it did have Windows, I would definitely fork over $650 USD for it to use as an offline/wifi device.
