New pics of Microsoft Courier

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on March 7th, 2010

Some new pics have surfaced of Microsoft’s dual-screen Courier, and it looks like it should be a decent competitor to the iPad. Some new details accompany the new pics as well. The device is less than inch thick, weighs just over a pound, and the two screens are about the size of a 5 x 7 photo.

There’s apparently a built-in camera and the NVIDIA Tegra 2 graphics processor will be driving a version of the Zune HD and Windows Phone 7 interfaces.

Microsoft Courier interface details

Microsoft Courier interface detailsA new set of documents leaked to Gizmodo show off the Courier‘s user interface, which uses everything from multitouch gestures to pen-based handwriting. Looks like the core of the interface is the Smart Agenda, which pulls all your content together like calendar entries, emails, etc in one starting place, described as “Cliff Notes” to the Pagestream “novel.”

The journal looks like it’s searchable in many ways, by time, location, and tags, and it’s all accessed by a multi-button pen. It also features a camera and there’s mention of “books and subscriptions,” so you may be able to use the Courier as an ebook reader as well. None of this is official, but man does it look sweet.

New Microsoft Courier video shows tablet interface details

New Microsoft Courier video shows tablet interface detailsMicrosoft’s Courier tablet took us all by surprise. Now an internal video has surfaced showing how Microsoft thinks we’ll use Courier, giving us an overview of the interface and more of Courier’s features. At the core of the Courier is the “infinite journal”, a journal/scrapbook that is endless, presumably bound only by storage. The journal can be published online, and it’s able to be downloaded in three formats: a Courier file, Powerpoint or PDF. There’s also a library where things like subscriptions, notebooks and apps, are stored.

It also shows some more traditional elements like a smart agenda, more defined folder system, universal search and multi-page web browsing. Nothing about viewing content, like watching movies, reading books etc. It looks like Courier is all about creating and writing with a pen, which is not what we are used to, especially when you think about the Apple tablet.

Microsoft’s Secret Courier Tablet Info Leaked

Microsoft Courier BookletAccording to a recent report from Gizmodo on Tuesday, Microsoft is confirming rumors that it actually does have a new dual-screen tablet in the works, codenamed Courier. According to the article and a short demo video, the Courier is a real thing and is more like a “booklet” than a tablet as it folds together and has two interactive touch screens side-by-side with loads of fast functionality.

The project has apparently been kept under pretty tight wraps with very few, both inside and outside of Microsoft, with knowledge about it. In fact, rumors are that the team working on the project, led by J. Allard (a designer involved in the Zune and the Xbox) has been kept away from the main Redmond campus to help keep it secret.
