    Has anyone had any luck finding accessories? It seems to be few choices right now. Are they actually making cases for this phone?

    Screen protectors on Amazon. Thinking I will put them on all 4 sides of the device. Other than that not much that I have seen

    Yeah, not much yet.
    I found this clip holder thing though.

    There's not much out there yet. OEMs may be waiting to see numbers before they produce much. If only 5 Duos are sold, then there's not much point in producing any accessories.

    Windows Central did have an article on available accessories (https://www.windowscentral.com/best-...uo-accessories). A lot of these are general Surface products that happen to work with the Duo (Slim pen, Surface Earbuds, O365, etc.).

    There are rumors that Microsoft will sell additional bumpers in different colors. That's yet to be officially announced though.

    I have accessories from my ipad that should work...like a hub. Already have surface headshones, airpods, google buds. I have a ton of surface pens. I'll probably just use the bumper that comes with it. I really don't want to cover this thing up. One thing I am actually waiting for is somekind of Car dock. though I have a spot where the surface can sit while attched to android auto...I might want to have it docked on the dash. PROCLIPdoesn't have anything yet, and all the mini tablet renditions are too big for the dash. Defeats the purpose if the entire device is up there in front of you. so...I'm waiting on those ideas as they come out.

    Looks interesting but it's really not me, I believe I will stick with the matte black skin I ordered, the bumper case and see what carry options/method works best for me. I have a belt pouch I got for the Duo and one of the Kensington belt clips ordered.

    I wonder why they say not to attach the pen to the device. It seems to stick to the phone pretty good. Maybe it messes with the antenna?

    It's "not supported". Which is pretty much telling you it might work but don't do it

    I think may just be saying it's not the intended use case. It may be an easy way to lose your pen, but may not necessarily impact the Duo itself.

    Microsoft Surface Duo Theorem Series Case

    i like the idea of this case and the protection it will provide, but i worry about the adhesive if i remove the duo from it often, to fold back for camera use or for folding into a stand. otterbox shows a photo of it folded and not attached. how long will the adhesive last? might just order the otterbox sleeve when it’s available. your thoughts?

    I've heard good things about this car mount with the Duo. By the looks of it, it would only be usable for "phone mode" https://www.amazon.com/dp/B082SDVTWB...pUvbUpU3820757

    Of interest, it seems a lot of slip covers for the thing are appearing on etsy. This may make the most sense as a case all things considered. (Only problem is they're all intended for use without the bumper.)

    Anyone found a cradle yet? I found one but I'm not posting about it until I see it. I've installed the Zagg screen protectors but be careful trying to follow the instructions. I found that they were almost impossible to follow.

    When you say "cradle" do you mean some kind of stand or port expansion? (or both)

    A simple charging stand for the desk. The USB-C ones I've found have the port in the center which wont work for the Duo.

    I feel like this is a good case for 3D printing. I'd definitely appreciate a 3D printed charging stand of some sort for the Duo.

    Curious to see how many of you have attached the bumpers. I'm hesitant to do it for no real reason other than waiting for a better option. If you have installed them, what do you think of them?

    i installed mine. very easy to install. i like the protection and feel i can place it down wherever with no worries. adds very little to the duo’s size. also, i dislike cases but use one to provide protection when placing phone on a table. this is imo a great compromise. edge protection and table protection without a case. i will buy the otterbox sleeve for when i need to put duo in my day bag for example.

    I went the 1st day bumper free then I installed them and actually kind of like them. I did get one slightly off but it's not much (I would say to be careful to align the end carefully where you start and it should go cleanly) it's not off by much and I don't want to mess up the adhesive so I am leaving it as is. I suppose at some point I will replace it with a different color.

    Cheers,

    I installed the bumpers to keep the device from sliding on the desk as I was inking in OneNote. I also like that they make the device easier to hold.

    If I install the bumper first, will that make it impossible to add a skin or screen protector?
