First Microsoft Courier live pictures and details!

The Engadget boys just posted the first live pictures of Microsoft’s Courier Tablet and some details about the devices specifications and release date. From what they’ve heard the Courier will feature an nVidia Tegra 2 chipset coupled with an OS based on Windows CE 6 (like Windows Phone 7 Series,Pink & Zune HD…). The product also seems to feature dual capacitive screens (“not much bigger than a 5×7 photo when closed”) that can be used with your fingers or the digital Pen pictured above. Microsoft is also apparently builing an eBook ecosystem around it. Release date is rumored to be Q3/Q4 2010, but this is probably a little bit early. If this turns out to be true and Windows CE is at the base of the Courier OS I expect Microsoft to unify the developement tools with the Zune HD & Windows Phone 7 Series.
