Microsoft Courier Dead Before Arrival - RIP

 EngadgetGizmodo, and ZDNet report that Microsoft killed what both gadget sites considered an innovative project after never having acknowledged the pregnancy :-)

See both stories for details on why the dual-screen tablet had raised expectations as high as they were and the reasons given for ending the project.  The speculation by site commenters is also worth reading.
I wondered if the lack of enthusiasm for another innovative dual-screen, tablet/e-reader, the enTourage eDGe (I think the strangely-capitalized letters did not help help at all) , might have been a factor too.
