Microsoft e Reader device?????

Wednesday Business Week had articles about ereaders. One interesting tidbit is a report by Gizmodo about a new device from Microsoft:

Hamilton and his cohorts didn't have long to bask in the publicity, though. The same day, online tech-gadget site Gizmodo reported that Microsoft is working on a dual-screen booklet-shaped device code-named Courier that uses both a stylus and finger gestures to operate. Microsoft's device appears to boast touchscreen capabilities similar to those in Sony (SNE) electronic book readers, but in color.

Here's a link to the Gizmodo picture. Not really sure if it is an ereader or a tablet pc:

Did someone else already post this?

I love competition.

If the price is reasonable enough, say $400 or less, then I'd buy one.
