Microsoft developing new tablet PC device


The booklet-shaped device, called Courier, is in the ‘late prototype’ stage of development, Gizmodo reported, without identifying the source of its information.

A tablet personal computer generally refers to a laptop which has a touch screen for operating the device, in place of a keyboard or mouse. Microsoft did not immediately answer a request for comment. The Courier device has dual 7-inch screens that are touch sensitive and can be used in conjunction with a stylus, Gizmodo reported. Gizmodo said that until recently, the project was only known to the few engineers and executives working on it — Microsoft’s brightest, like Entertainment & Devices tech chief and user-experience wizard J Allard, who is spearheading the project.  
Apple has long been expected to launch its own tablet PC –— essentially a large version of its iPhone –— but has so far announced no plans to do so.
