Microsoft to counter iTablet with Courier?
Ok, ok, so Apple hasn’t yet confirmed the much-rumoured iTablet/iPad/Macbook Tablet, but that isn’t stopping Microsoft from allegedly moving ahead with its own take on the portable device.
A video of the dual touchscreen device was published by tech blog Gizmodo, and shows a dynamic conceptual user experience that would make even Mr Jobs proud. Offering an interface quite different to that of Microsoft’s Zune HD and upcoming Windows Mobile 6.5, the Courier video at least highlights the usability of such a device.
Seeing the prospective tablet work its magic comes just a few months after Microsoft’s Future Vision 2019 video, which gazed into a technophile’s utopia of gadgetry. It seems like Courier could mark the next step towards that goal...
...and I want one already!
What do you think of Courier? Does the concept change your perception of tablet PCs?
