Microsoft has canceled the Courier, a two-screen prototype tablet that was leaked in September, according to Gizmodo.

We're told that on Wednesday, Microsoft boss Steve Ballmer Microsoft execs informed the internal 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.

Microsoft Corporate VP of Communications Frank Shaw confirmed this information:

"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."

The Courier seemed like an interesting device. Hopefully Microsoft has something better to replace it.
