Microsoft Courier Revealed

Gadget blog Gizmodo has revealed a crap-ton of details on the Microsoft Courier. The booklet PC is in its prototype stages, but based on the info revealed, and the photos and a video of the thing in action, it will be a must-have very, very soon.

Currently in the "late prototype" stage, Courier is controlled through a combination of stylus input and touch-controls. Although technically a tablet, it's hinged in the middle, so it's more like a notebook. Courier  sports two screens that will be around 7" in size.

The video game connection: Entertainment & Devices tech chief J. Allard, is in charge of the project. Allard was the head of the team that created the original Xbox, and Xbox Live. He also spearheaded the Microsoft Zune, so there is some serious experience behind the development of Courier.

If you want to know more about Courier, check out Attack of the Show today at 7 PM. Gizmodo's Adam Frucci will be on hand to give in-depth analysis of the device.

What do you think? Sexy, right? But how much would you seriously pay for one? A grand? Five hundred bucks?
