Owned by Amazon, Woot has basically become the go-to seller of the dual-screen Android handset over the last few months for folks willing to ignore its obvious and enduring shortcomings at the right price. The e-tailer that has quite a reputation of selling the most popular products at the heftiest possible discounts is somehow able to find enough first-gen Surface Duo inventory to regularly come back to essentially the same deals and gradually make them slightly better.
If this hot new deal feels a little too good to be true, it’s important to point out that Woot shoppers will need to take their ultra-affordable Surface Duos to AT&T for US carrier activation. If that sounds like a complete dealbreaker, you can always order the device in an unlocked 128GB model from Adorama via Amazon at a slightly higher price of $314.99.
Of course, the aforementioned 8.1-inch display is undoubtedly the key selling point, rocking a super-flexible and surprisingly robust hinge that allows users to reduce the screen real estate to 5.6 inches depending on their specific needs in different environments and for different tasks.
