mini 9 courier

Anxious to get your hands on Microsoft’s upcoming Courier tablet, but don’t feel like waiting for Microsoft to actually release it? MyDellMini forum member pakkei feels your pain. But instead of sitting on his butt, he decided to do something about it and built his own Courier-like device.

Basically, he took apart a Dell Inspiron Mini 9, added a touchscreen display, and then for good measure removed the keyboard and replaced it with another touchscreen display.

The project is a bit rough around the edges, but Windows 7 detects both touchscreens and pakkei says he expects to use one screen for reading and the other for writing using an on-screen keyboard and/or handwriting with InkSeine.

  1. It might be rough around the edges but it is still pretty cool looking. I like how the screens sync to show the left an right half of a photo.

  2. Now for a couple of custom-bent hinges and some epoxy… or one swivel hinge ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Rough around the edges isn’t the word for it! That’s a piece of home-brewed genius right there.
