iPad Killer…um…killed

In early March, I wrote that I’d seen a video for a product that Microsoft was developing, the Courier, and that the device concept blew me away. (The video is still available for viewing.)

Well, today brings the sad news that Microsoft has pulled the plug on the project.

As I said in March, it is arguable that the Courier concept is so different from the iPad, thereby rendering the moniker iPad Killer inaccurate. I suppose that is probably true, and it’s also all moot now.

Regardless, the Courier was and still is the coolest device concept I’ve seen in years, and I hope that someone picks up the idea and runs with it.
