Forget vegetablet! Microsoft Courier is cool!

Click here to see more

" Courier is a real device, and we've heard that it's in the "late prototype" stage of development. It's not a tablet, it's a booklet. The dual 7-inch (or so) screens are multitouch, and designed for writing, flicking and drawing with a stylus, in addition to fingers. "

This is looking good... now we need specs and reality check!

Jump to Giz to see the video too!

Looks like most of the UI is based on InkSeine, if MS can get the random slow downs and crashes in InkSeine addressed and make it generally more polished i think it will work just as well as is implied in the video.

Overall a nice concept that with a little work should become a very nice product (I'm not used to saying that about MS products, kinda suprised myself)

Vegetablet. jkk, you're genius. Something that funny really is a good start into the day (here in Switzerland it's now roughly 10:00)
But the booklet looks awesome. But i really hope it runs a fullblown CPU, which can also run win7. Microsoft is amazing lately. (zunehd,win7, now this. Can't wait for your 20 min unboxing of it :-)

If it's for real: Bring it to europe soon!

The Dual-Touchscreen concept, if suitable for writing as shown in the video, is just perfectly what I wan't for an every day Secondary-Device. Though it needs some reasonable battery life, for i'd like using such a thing for taking notes on lectures, and a somewhat open software plattform, so i can use the programs I want.
