We reported on the Microsoft Courier before here. This prototype tablet device is set to compete with the recently launched Apple iPad . A number of video’s and pictures have been circulating on the web over the past few days and we have them here. Where the iPad as a screensize of just over 10 inch the Microsoft Courier, dubbed a ‘booklet pc’ works with two 7 inch screens hinged in the middle. This gives users the option to use both screens for different applications while dragging and dropping elements from screen to screen. The device is more compact than the iPad and these video’s show interesting applications beyond reading magazines and books. As usual the Microsoft device appears to focus more on a professional market rather then entertainment.
