Microsoft's new Courier tablet hit the ground running this morning, and has already made its rounds across the Internet. The dual-screen design, bright color display, and slick, business-professional look of the whole product have most of us drooling. Despite that, the Courier may never see the light of day. If CNet is right, the Courier is just one of many prototype tablets.

Apparently the Microsoft tablet design team, headed up by executive J. Allard, have come up with several different prototypes. The courier is only one of them. Apparently Microsoft has been working on building a tablet for several years now, only strict security measures have kept this info from leaking out.

Cloak and dagger stuff aside, it seems increasingly likely (CNet's sources also told them the tablet is legit) that Microsoft will come out with a tablet in the near future. If that happens, don't be surprised if it ends up based off of an entirely different prototype concept. The Microsoft tablet we end up getting might not be the dual-page beauty we see today.
