Microsoft Kills Courier Tablet Project

Friday Apr 30th 2010 by Staff

Redmond has decided not to release a device to compete with the iPad--and the rest of the tablet devices expected to be released this year.

Network World: Microsoft has confirmed that it has canceled its project to create a mobile tablet, codenamed "Courier." “At any given time, across any of our business groups, there are new ideas being investigated, tested, and incubated. It’s in Microsoft’s DNA to continually develop and incubate new technologies to foster productivity and creativity,” said Frank Shaw, corporate vice president of communications at Microsoft. “The ‘Courier’ project is an example of this type of effort and its technologies will be evaluated for use in future Microsoft offerings.”

Reports said that Courier would look like a book with two 7-inch screens and feature a camera, Wi-Fi, and both touch and pen inputs.
