Surface Neo delayed, Windows 10X coming to laptops and more

Last fall, Microsoft had its most impressive events in its history. They not only unveiled the Surface Laptop 3 in a 15″ model with AMD and Intel processors, the SQ1 powered, Surface Pro X with LTE built in, Surface Earbuds and the aforementioned dual screen Surface Neo powered by Windows 10X.

During the event Microsoft said that Windows 10X was for dual screen devices but after the event reports suggested that the device would see life on single display devices like laptops, 2in1’s and tablets.

Windows 10X reportedly began life on the Surface Duo but was scrapped before release to instead be powered by Android.

According to ZDNet, Microsoft’s new strategy reflects ““the new world where virtualization and single-screen devices are more of a priority than brand-new form factors.”

ZDNet goes on to say that their contacts say “Chief Product Officer Panos Panay informed some of his team internally today, April 8, that Microsoft wouldn’t be delivering its own Surface Neo dual-screen 10X devices this calendar year. In addition, Microsoft also won’t be enabling third-party dual-screen Windows devices to ship with 10X in calendar 2020.”

Regarding the Android powered Surface Duo, Microsoft has reportedly not said it is delaying the device.
