    i found out this week that the MS Courier has been canned. whether it was merely vaporware or MS's honest attempt at doing something outside the box, i wanted one. HARD. a double tablet, or booklet, netbook focused on media creation rather than consumption and built around multitouch AND stylus inputs made my brain salivate. was it pretty niche? yeah, probably. would it have sold enough to make a profit? i believe it could have. the only thing it was missing was something to make it attractive when not being used for work. like apps. and 3rd party interface mods and programs.

    i would love to see google/android pick up where MS left off and create a booklet netbook designed for designers/creatives/students. and if they could incorperate the next itteration of the pixel qi transflective screen, bonus points.

    so if anyone here is a product dev at google or knows eric schmidt maybe get this thing started? :D
