I agree I love my iPad and I think it would be very hard for microsoft to make one thats so simpe to use. Also I wondered if the rumored Zune HD2 could make an appearance at the event? The current zune hd was revealed around this time last year.A whole 3 months late to announce, and by the time it's available, a whole another 3 months late.
If you've seen what Kia's been up to lately you may want to rethink that. They're starting to make some really stylish looking cars for the masses, not just the few that are rich.
The timing would be great for the Courier, somehow, I'm thinking it's the PINK project.The problem with the Courier is based on the videos, its purely a productivity tool/journal.
Yes, the UI is beautiful, but I don't see how a device like that (the way it's shown) would be really useful to average customers. I don't want to browse the web with a big black bar in the middle, or watch a movie that way either.
In fact, i bet a Courier type of software could be made for the iPad.
We'll see what they have to show. Maybe its the HP Slate
But right now as I see it, the way the Courier is looking, it looks la lot less practical than an iPad.
All the early reports have the Courier as a really nice device. Who knows what the final version will be like, but its hardly a Kia.
And just like Kia and BMW, 90% of the car is exactly the same, the Kia is half the price and you can talk to a Kia owner without feeling like you need a shower afterwards.
Can you link to a report of someone seeing or using a Courier device? The only thing we've seen from Microsoft are concept videos... animations of ideas, not actual products.All the early reports have the Courier as a really nice device. Who knows what the final version will be like, but its hardly a Kia.
