The Emergence of Microsoft’s Amazing “Courier” Tablet-Science Fiction Becomes Science Fact.

From Fastcompany.com / Gizmodo.com

” Check out the video of Courier in action–Gizmodo’s apparently obtained the information from directly within Microsoft’s secret development team. (The video file shown last night was titled “projectwood” but don’t be fooled into thinking that’s a Microsoft code name.) It’s a dual 7-inch screen unit with Wi-fi, GPS and camera built-in.

It’s amazing, isn’t it? The kind of amazingly futuristic UI that we’ve seen a thousand times in sci-fi movies, infused with Surface-like powers, promising a crossover between a Star Trek digital pad, and The HitchHiker’s Guide to The Galaxy as depicted in the movie, and the voice of that spooky lady in the Palm Pre ads. It’s also, according to Gizmodo, absolutely real, in development and currently at a “late prototype” stage. You will, allegedly, be able to buy this thing soon. “
