Video shows Microsoft's Surface Duo being used in public

Microsoft's upcoming dual-screen Android phone, the Surface Duo, is getting ready for prime time. A couple of days ago, Israel Rodriguez spotted one in use on Vancouver's SkyTrain, tweeting an image that shows what appears to be a flash next to the front-facing camera. But as promised, there's more.

In fact, there's a lot more. Rodriguez tweeted out a link to a YouTube video that includes several photos and some video footage, although there's no sound. It shows various use cases, such as playing games, checking email, using the device in various form factors, and more.

Toward the end, there are also some shots of the outside of the device. From what's seen in the video, there is no camera on the outside, as was implied by the earlier image. That camera above the screen will likely serve as both the front-facing and the rear-facing camera. After all, if the device is closed, a camera wouldn't be of much use without a viewfinder.

Again, it's no surprise that Microsoft is testing out the handset in the wild. This is something that's common on phones, and a moving train is a great way to test out network performance.
