Sounds good up to a point, but why not have a 5G option available?

This is an 2018 hardware(Snapdragon 855), Microsoft has been use-case testing it for 2 years and this is why it doesn't have 5G. Follow-up versions will be released sooner.

The same thing happened with the Galaxy Fold, which was an 2016 hardware that went through testing for 3 years before being released in 2019.

Greed.......

Microsoft Corp says the Surface Duo, its dual-screen smartphone powered by Alphabet Inc's Android operating system, will start at a price of $1,399 and arrive in U.S. stores beginning Sept 10

I have little in politically in common with Elizabeth Warren, however, Mrs Warren hit the nail dead center here....

“There is nobody in this country who got rich on their own. Nobody. You built a factory out there - good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory... Now look. You built a factory and it turned into something terrific or a great idea - God bless! Keep a hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.”
