This "documentation" is as fantastic as the original video. And I mean that in the strictest sense of the word. Pure fantasy. I don't doubt that somewhere there are MS engineers who are puzzling over how to make an actual device that works like these concepts, but the idea that all of these features are in a working "late-prototype" phase somewhere at MS is much less likely to me than the idea that MS believes releasing this sort of "proof" is a clever business decision to forestall tablet sales by other manufacturers. That MS wants you to believe they will have something as good or better than an Apple tablet in the near future is what these "leaks" are all about. If it's taken MS two years to even do a fair knock-off of the iPod Touch and they're sticking with WinMo for an answer to the iPhone, you know they're frantically trying to avoid another Apple product taking the market by storm. Sowing FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) about products they intend to compete with (once they can get their hands on a copy they can start reverse-engineering) is an ancient tradition at MS. I'm surprised that there's so much credulity in the media about this Courier "info."
