Rumors may becoming true that Microsoft is planning to launch its own tablet PC with new photos appearing on Gizmodo that show Microsoft's new tablet along with a pr demo of the device.

Microsoft's new device, dubbed the Courier, does not actually look like a pc (view photo below) but rather consists of two 7-inch tablets joined together to form a booklet of sorts.

Courier is in the late prototype stage of development, Gizmodo reported, without identifying the source of its information.

Both screens are multitouch, and designed for writing, flicking and drawing with a stylus, in addition to fingers. They’re connected by a hinge that holds a single iPhone-esque home button. Statuses, like wireless signal and battery life, are displayed along the rim of one of the screens. On the back cover is a camera, Gizmodo noted.

Chief Experience Officer J Allard - the person behind the Xbox brand for several years - is said to also be in charge of the Courier.

Courier appears to be at a stage where Microsoft is developing the user experience and showing design concepts to outside agencies.

It's not clear whether Courier will ever hit store shelves, as the device is just one of many tablet prototypes that Microsoft is developing, according to a CNET report.
