Microsoft executives informed the internal development team that had been working on the tablet device that the project would no longer be supported. Courier had never been publicly announced or acknowledged as a Microsoft product.
All this news seems to provide even better opportunities for the Apple iPad. Not that the iPad needs many more opportunities. More than one million iPads were sold in the first month the device was available.
