The Courier closes up when not in use, and opens like a book to reveal facing screens.

Unlike current black-and-white e-books, the Courier utilizes a color touchscreen.

A 3-megapixel camera is embedded on the tablet's outside "cover."

One of the screens has status lights on the edge, so you don't need to open the booklet.

While it appears to accept hand gestures (based on the leaked UI video), a stylus is also used for data input.
