While we still don’t know whether Apple is actually releasing a touchscreen tablet, which has had techies and the rest of the world buzzing for quite some time now, Microsoft has!

The Microsoft Courier is still in the late stages of development, but it’s not really called a tablet; rather, it’s a ‘booklet’. It also presents a very different user experience than what people expect of the fabled Apple tablet. The Microsoft Courier features dual 7-inch screens which are multi-touch, meaning you can write, flick, and draw with both a stylus and your fingers. The best part though is that the hinge between the screens doubles as a nifty ‘computer pocket’—if you will—that allows the user to hold items they want to transfer from one screen to the other.
