share on:

The tablet rumors were flying this week. It appears Microsoft won’t ship the intriguing Courier according to Gizmodo, which quoted a Microsoft media spokesman as saying; “At any given time, we’re looking at new ideas, investigating, testing, incubating them… The Courier project is an example of this type of effort. It will be evaluated for use in future offerings, but we have no plans to build such a device at this time.” The Courier raised eyebrows for its cool form factor with dual screens with a touch/pen based interface and also because it seemed lumbering Microsoft was going to act nimbly in the hardware space for a welcome change.
Thursday, TechCrunch reported HP will nix the Windows 7-based Slate PC shown at the Consumer Electronics Show in January in favor of an Android-based model.
Some are also wondering if Motorola is heading into the tablet arena.
