courier journal

Those crazy kids at Gizmodo either have an incredibly reliable source inside Microsoft that keeps slipping them details about the company’s upcoming Courier tablet with dual touchscreen displays, or the whole thing is part of an elaborate hoax. Either way, Gizmodo has published the latest leaked document about the Courier, and this one details exactly how you’re supposed to use the thing.

The display supports multitouch gestures, and you can clip a content by tapping and holding; flick content from one screen to the other by sliding it with two fingers; and pinch certain content to zoom. 

The user interface is based on a “journal” metaphor, and you can create notes, copy and paste items from the web, and perform other actions. But there’s also a “Smart Agenda” view that summarizes content by providing you with email messages, to-do lists, weather, and other information.

Of course, the Microsoft Courier will also have a web browser, which seems to have a rather minimal interface. The device will also have a camera for taking photos, and a “Library” screen for finding all of your applications, data, and other information. The whole thing makes a lot more sense if you check out Gizmodo’s walkthrough, so head on over there and take a look.
