Gizmodo says Microsoft killed the Courier tablet video project. Microsoft’s Frank Shaw:
It’s in our DNA to develop new form factors and natural user interfaces to foster productivity and creativity. 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.
Apple’s iPhone was introduced over three years ago. To date, Microsoft has yet to answer with a shipping smart phone OS to compete. Now their Courier is dead.
