Microsoft Working On Dual-Screen Surface

Microsoft Working On Dual-Screen Surface

Microsoft never delivered on its Courier tablet concept that was rumored a decade ago, but there's great news for fans of the idea. And given that Microsoft is working closely with Intel, it wouldn't be a surprise if the said device will feature an Intel processor. But despite that, many were still intrigued that employees even formed long lines just to get a closer glimpse at this new Surface device.

Courier, plans for which were dropped in 2010, was intended as a dual-screen tablet. Centaurus is expected to run "Windows Lite" - a stripped down version of Microsoft's popular operating system that will reportedly be designed exclusively for dual-screen devices initially, before being made available for Chromebook competitors. The company may launch it in the next six months.

I for one, love the idea if a dual screen device that represents a notebook and allows me to take notes and watch Netflix/play games at the same time in meetings - because you know that's what we would all rather be doing anyway.

The protesters have announced they are suspending talks with the military regarding the creation of a transitional government. For Saudi Arabia and the UAE, preserving "stability" in Sudan via support for the TMC could become an expensive commitment.


A prototype for Microsoft's "Andromeda" dual-screen phone. It is known that Microsoft is working on the Centaurus project (code name) about two years now, where the big goal is to create a device that redefines the concept of a laptop-tablet hybrid.

Microsoft also demonstrated a new prototype version of Microsoft Teams, a company's chat application which they plan to extend to families and friends.
