Microsoft Courier Tablet/Booklet

A recent posting on the Gizmodo blog, features an impressive Microsoft tablet/booklet known as, Courier. The device is said to be in the late prototype stage and depending on when it’s launched it could give the anticipated Apple tablet some good competition. Check out the short video on the posting to see how it works. The device opens like a book and features two multi-touch screens. Users can write and draw with a stylus, and objects can be moved between the screens. It looks like a pretty neat device.
