Too much news overload on iPad, BBC and CNN thinks it is worth a “breaking news alert”, even The Economist magazine thinks it is worth two articles. To me, it is a disappointment as it is not a full computer. A lot of technology commentator got it right, it is a oversize iPod Touch.
However, if Gizmodo’s reporting is true, Microsoft Courier will be the one tablet I want (See the video). It got several things right: The UI is intuitive enough, it is a good electronic organizer, much more than a glorified book reader or portable TV or a gaming platform.
If Microsoft ‘leaks’ this to sound out interest, it got it. Now let’s see whether they can deliver.
