You might recall that cool dual screen Courier concept that Microsoft was showing off. I know I was looking forward to seeing how the device turned out. If you were interesting in the project, we have bad news today.

Microsoft has decided to kill off the Courier tablet. The cancellation is surprising considering that we had been hearing the device was on track to hit stores in 2011.

 

Microsoft's Frank Shaw told Gizmodo, "At any given time, we're looking at new ideas, investigating, testing, incubating them. 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."
