Have you recently tried to buy the Surface Duo 2 but couldn’t? (especially in the U.S.) It seems that they could be out of stock as per the folks at Windows Central.
There were reports that surfaced over the past few weeks that alluded that the device was running low in stock, and some local stores even did away with their dedicated Surface Duo 2 stations. Back in April, the Surface Duo 2’s price was slashed significantly from $1,500 down to $1,000 at both the Microsoft Store and Best Buy, the lowest price the unit has retailed for yet, which could have caused sales to spike up.
Thanks a million!

If you head on over to Microsoft’s website trying to make the purchase, you will find that the device is not available for purchase for consumers and businesses as well. I personally tried making a purchase from the website, but my efforts were rendered futile. Upon hitting the configure now button, I was not redirected to a new page where I am ideally supposed to enter my details and finalize the payment etc.
Remember, both the Surface Duo and Surface Duo 2 are due for an Android 12L update. With this in mind, it could be possible that Microsoft is not intending to restock up until this update is live.
With Microsoft’s annual showcase of hardware barely a few months away (sometime between the end of September and the end of October) there have been a couple of hints that have surfaced that point to a possible Surface Studio update. As is the case with the Refreshed Surface Keyboard, Mouse, and Pen images shared on Twitter by Zac Bowden. We are also likely to see several updates to Microsoft’s computer lineup which features the flagship Surface Pro among other entries as well as Surface branded accessories during the showcase. This is also when Microsoft launches new devices like the Intel variant of the Surface Pro X.
