Is this the return of the Courier?
Microsoft reportedly has a dual-screen Surface prototype up and running.
The Windows maker recently demoed a dual-screen Surface internally, according to a report Monday from The Verge. Going by the codename Centaurus, the new device is said to likely use the company's Windows Lite OS, which is a slimmed-down, dual-screen version of Windows designed to compete against Google's Chrome OS .
First news of Centaurus came in December 2018. It was reportedly set to replace an earlier concept for a foldable dual-screen, pocket-sized device codenamed Andromeda, which was shelved by Microsoft in late 2018.
Back in 2009, Microsoft developed a dual-screen tablet called the Courier that was set to go up against the Apple iPad , but it was canceled and eventually replaced by the Surface.
Microsoft didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
