Microsoft Confirms The Existence Of Its Courier Device, But Has No Plans To Build Such A Device

The Microsoft Courier has always been a rather mythical product, and there is some good news and bad news related to it. The good news is that Microsoft has confirmed the existence of its Courier project; the bad news is that the software giant has no plans to build such a device. The Courier was apparently an incubation project, which means that it did have a chance of being commercialized, but it seems that the decision to commercialize the product never became a reality. That being said, there’s still the possibility of the technology developed for this project being used in other products, though we’re still sad at the thought that we won’t be able to hold the Microsoft Courier in our own hands.

According to Frank Shaw, Microsoft’s VP of corporate communications:

“At any given time, we’re looking at new ideas, investigating, testing, incubating them. It’s in our DNA to develop new form factors and natural user interfaces to foster productivity and creativity. The Courier project is an example of this type of effort. It will be evaluated for use in future offerings, but we have no plans to build such a device at this time.”
