Microsoft Courier Tablet

Gizmodo has a story about a new tablet that Microsoft is working on.

As far as the software goes, that at least looks interesting, but I really not sure of that hardware.

Between the two screens that will touch each other when the thing closes, the middle bar that looks like it’ll get in the way, and the pen interface that will make you write out URLS… I’m not sure I’m sold.

One would hope that they create a whole new OS for this thing, and won’t rely on Windows Anything for the programming side. There’s just too much baggage there, and with a completely new device they have a chance to break away.

Do I think they’ll do that? Nope. I can hope though.
