    Oh well at least there is still the APad (Android Pad). Can't wait for that to come out in a higher resolution!

    I really liked the idea of the courier too, could fold in half and put into jacket pocket.

    I hope they have only shelved the thing until technology in screens can improve or something like that?

    I think everyone thought the concept was good, it was just no doubt feasibility thing?

    Maybe the cunning plan is making everyone think they've pulled the plug
