Now, adding more fuel to the fire is Microsoft's Corporate Vice President of Devices and one of the heads behind Surface products, Panos Panay who took to Twitter on Friday and posted a picture (see below) thanking LG display for the caricature. Having impressed many with its Surface designs so far, with Andromeda Microsoft seems to be looking to push things even further, blurring the boundaries between PCs and mobiles.
Microsoft's long-rumored, dual-screen Surface device will fold up small enough to fit in a pocket, according to an internal document reported by The Verge today.
In an internal email obtained by The Verge, the device is described as part of the Andromeda project - Microsoft's plan to roll out different versions of WIndows suited to different devices. The document reportedly says that the device represents a "device form factor that brings together innovative new hardware and software experiences to create a truly personal and versatile computing experience" and that it will be "new and disruptive". This device has previously appeared in patents and in operating system references multiple times in the past. But at the moment we can see that Microsoft has definitely been working a dual-screen device that features a 360-degree hinge similar to Lenovo's Yoga laptops.

It is the first time since returning to Cleveland that the Cavaliers have been anxious that they could lose their hometown hero. Photos posted to social media showed him at the airport with his luggage waiting to get into an SUV, CBS Los Angeles reports .
As you'd expect from a Surface, the documents show that Microsoft has toyed with the idea of including stylus support on Andromeda, while also testing the use of ARM-based processors instead of traditional x86 chips. According to this latest report, these renders are right on track, and this is exactly what the Andromeda device looks like right now.
Microsoft's Andromeda is being pitched as the next major disruption to the mobile space, but sources that are familiar with the work are advising caution, as Microsoft can pull the plug on the device at any stage.
