Just last week on this channel we were exploring what it means to blur the line between smartphone and computer … but I guess the reality is that I’ve been thinking about it since about 2007, when I realized during an otherwise uneventful walk around my college town that I could post a new LiveJournal entry (yep, I was one of those guys) right from my pocket instead of going home for my computer.

This week, instead of replacing a PC with a smartphone, we’re talking about bringing a PC feature to the smartphone: the idea of a second screen. The subject of today’s episode of Into The Fold is the Surface Duo 2 from Microsoft, and yes, you’ve seen it before on this channel – but it’s not the phone you remember.



This is the twelfth in a series of episodes exploring the many facets of life on a folding screen. From the best foldable phones of 2021 to the bleeding-edge world of folding-screen laptops, Into The Fold is MrMobile’s showcase for the most exciting movement in mobile technology since 2007!
