Courier User Interface from Gizmodo on Vimeo.

Remember the Microsoft Courier from a week or so ago? If not it is a very cool looking tablet style PC with two screens that resembles a book. Well Gizmodo, which got the scoop on the Courier in the first place, now has a video from Microsoft which highlights how the manufacturer thinks we might use it.

It is not what you might expect either. Apparently the Courier is not all about content consumption, having a web page on one screen and video running on the other etc. It designed for content creation with the owner using a touch screen and pen to put together a kind of diary which can be re-created online. Interesting stuff.
