Microsoft to pit Tegra-based Courier against iPad?

Posted on Monday, March 08 2010 @ 17:17:20 CET by


DailyTech reports Microsoft is planning to introduce a Courier tablet in the second half of this year. The device is reportedly powered by NVIDIA's Tegra 2 and may go head to head with the Apple iPad tablet.
According to the source, the Courier will weigh just over a pound (similar to the iPad, which weighs 1.6 lb) and will function as a "digital journal"-cum-eBook reader. It will be under and inch thick and have a closed size about as big as a 5x7 inch picture. Its two screens will reportedly be powered by NVIDIA's Tegra 2, a ultra-low-voltage Cortex A9 ARM processor.

The tablet will run on the same base OS that Windows Mobile 7 and the Zune HD OS are built on, Windows CE 6. The device will center around writing and drawing, with the ability to post everything you write to a personal website with flexible sharing levels. Like the iPad, the Courier will have a 3.5 mm headphone jack, but it one-ups its fruity competitor, offering a built-in camera as well.
