In a shocking, just shocking change, Microsoft has confirmed and killed the Courier. Remember the super-cool concept video of the split paned Microsoft tablet that people were all a-buzz a couple of months ago? Well, turns out (again, shockingly) that the system was just a video of technology that doesn't exist, and may or may not have parts of it appear in future products. Ironically the Courier was cited a few times in the past months as "the iPad killer". Uh huh.
Bummer, as it looked very cool. Of course, something that cool (especially from Microsoft) is indistinguishable from a tech demo concept video.
