Wash. – Microsoft (NASD: MSFT) has shelved
development of a dual-screen tablet computer, codenamed "Courier,"
that was aiming for the e-book reader market, The Wall Street Journal reported.
The company didn’t give a reason for the move, but notified the development
team last week. "It will be evaluated for use in future offerings, but we
have no plans to build such a device at this time," Microsoft spokesman
Frank Shaw told The Journal.
