What can Courier teach the market?


Engadget has a very interesting article about what Microsoft’s Courier could mean.  Excited about the iPad?  Courier presents an evolution of the standard tablet model.  Instead of being either a large iPhone or a small computer, Courier is a notebook with a computer behind it.  It looks like the culmination of the best ideas from Evernote and OneNote and sticky notes.  It’s a more fluid and multi-dimensional platform than the iPad.  Plus, it makes use of digital pens and handwriting recognition.  As much as multi-touch is supposed to be the defacto standard for intuitive and natural inputs, I think handwriting recognition still has great value, more than on screen keyboards at least.  Besides, I can’t draw with my fingers.
