The device from Microsoft is most likely to be in the final stage of running-in and will be presented to the public in the next six months.

In April appeared the first patent images of the device, on which it is visible, that it is executed in the form of a book and folds displays inside.The bending structure is made of two independent articulated units that are responsible for the screen position.
