Microsoft attempts to redefine the tablet with secret Courier device

If rumors around Microsoft's secret Courier tablet are true, will it make Microsoft a leader in mobile tech? And, will IT soon be support Couriers?

Last week, published a video of Courier--a new Microsoft tablet. According to ZDNet blogger Mary Jo Foley, the Courier is apparently past the research stage in Microsoft's product development process but not yet in the commercialization pipeline.

Earlier this week, Gizmodo followed up with a second clip, which Gizmodo said was produced by the same firm that collaborated with Microsoft's Pioneer Studios on the earlier video.

If the Courier is indeed in the Microsoft pipeline, do you think it will be a hit with business users? Will you be support these things in the near future?
