Microsoft "Courier" To Run Windows 7 and Focuses on Pen Input

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

Microsoft is really looking to make a big turn around with their upcoming software and even hardware front. The Microsoft Courier looks like it will go in direct competition with Apple's iTablet since Microsoft is pegging a mid-2010 launch date for their Booklet / tablet device. Apparently, Microsoft is actually producing the hardware for this device and Courier will actually run Windows 7 when it's complete.

I feel that the main difference between Apple's and Microsoft's tablets is that Apple is focusing on touch input, whereas Microsoft is focusing on pen input. The Courier will be finger-friendly - and will have finger gestures for flipping the page and stuff - but they're focusing on pen input. I see Microsoft targeting business employees with their tablet as it seems more "professional."
