On the cusp of Apple’s iPad launch coming April 3rd, Microsoft is making some noise with their yet to be officially announced Microsoft Courier. Recent specs show that the tablet/e-reader/netbook will be under 1″ in thickness and weigh less than a pound.
As for its interface, the Courier will likely run two side-by-side 5×7 inch screens that run a variation of Windows Mobile 7, feature a NVIDIA Tegra 2 graphics processors with handwriting recognition, store most user generated data on cloud storage, and include a built-in camera. Microsoft’s Courier should be released by the 2nd half of 2010. (www.microsoft.com)
