Microsoft introduced its dual-screen, Android-powered Surface Duo last year. Offering the power of two screens, Surface Duo promises to increase your productivity and offer you the flexibility to do more. A revolutionary product that also has the potential to get popular among the non-tech crowd that doesn't often favor maintaining a ton of products as Duo can be that one trusted product.
2 screens, 6 modes, 360° hinge - this is the smartphone you want to get your hands on! Microsoft itself is offering a $658 discount on the device, bringing the original price of $1399.99 down to $741.99 (or $24.74/mo) for the 128GB variant. The 256GB variant is down to $791.99 from its original price of $1499.99.
BUT, things get even more interesting if you don't need a monthly plan and can buy outside of Microsoft Store. Woot is offering Surface Duo for just $549.99 for the 128GB variant and $619.99 for the 256GB variant making it the lowest price we have seen on the Duo. It's a discount of over $850!
