“It feels like the whole world is holding its breath for the Apple tablet. But maybe we’ve all been dreaming about the wrong device,” Gizmodo reports. “This is Courier, Microsoft’s astonishing take on the tablet.”
MacDailyNews Take: What’s astonishing about it? That it looks to be 1990’s thick, that it’s stuck running some version of Windows, that it’s vaporous computer graphics with a cartoon demo, or all three?
Gizmodo continues, “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.”
MacDailyNews Take: Blah, blah, blah. It’s not a “booklet,” it’s a “vaporlet.” So, why is this “astounding” CG imagery being emitted right now? Are Microsoft worried that a real device is coming soon from another company? And, careful, Gizmodo: Besides having been PlayedForSure, Multi-Touch™ is a trademark of Apple Inc.
