Sneak Peek at the Microsoft Courier

Microsoft Courier

Two still mythical tablet devices, the Microsoft Courier and the Apple Tablet, are probably the hottest and most coveted devices that do not yet officially exist. To further fuel the anticipatory gadget lust, Gizmodo has scored an in-depth look at the former’s user interface and overall design.

Some Other Aspects

As we were clued into by earlier leaks, the Infinite Journal is the key metaphor for Courier. It’s like an enormous notebook for collecting pretty much any kind of content: clippings from the web, your own notes, diagrams and drawings, photos from the on-board camera, etc. Each item gets a timestamp and geotag, and you can add more tags for better searchability as well.

Several key “views” into your Journal are detailed in the leaked document, including a Smart Agenda that acts as a sort of a Cliff Notes representation of your entire journal, making important items visible at a glance. The Journal Overview is another style of at-a-glance window into the journal contents, with an integrated search interface. The Library is the main file browser metaphor that organizes everything by type. The left screen acts as a “favorites” tray where you can sticky your most important apps and projects in one place.

Also detailed is the Browser (pictured below), allowing you to easily clip content from the web into your journal. You can also flip through your history with a vertical Cover Flow-like index card system. Another handy organization metaphor is the ability to “tuck” items into the device’s spine to temporarily store something and move it from one section of your journal to another.

  18. I enjoy the knowledge you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I think the admin of this web page is really working hard in support of his web site, since here every material is quality based information. Now I feel stupid. That’s cleared it up for me

    It is a general notion that if scam is big it has to be in rich and wealthy nations but to our surprise it is not wealthy nations where such scams can be, and hence they are wealthy. Even after several damages filled by public money at times and in different modes, yet what is revealed is about 300 billion dollars of scam that comes from a third world country India. But it is not regarded as scam due to ignorance of the mass and the tactic of the working class that evolved it and the nexus sharing benefits.
