Ultra Portable tablet from Microsoft. Information was leaked about Microsoft’s secret tablet as early as last September. Here is more information, photos and videos.
Reliable sources that the website Engadget.com has been in contact with, said that the tablet is designed to be ultra portable. This suggests that it is less than 3 inches thick, weighs about a pound and is about the size of a small photograph when it is closed.
Instead Courier will be based on Tegra 2, which is a chip set for mobile devices developed by Nvidia and are running the same operating system as Zune HD and Windows Mobile 7-series, which according to Engadget is Windows CE 6.
Previously it has been said that the user interface will be pen-based and centered around writing and drawing, including built-in handwriting recognition. The device can also be set up to a website, where you can read the contents of a blog-like packaging complete with comments.
The device is also said to have built-in camera, jack-plug for multimedia use and can be used as a Microsoft e-book reader. The price of the product is not yet clear, but the release date is set to the third or fourth quarter this year.
