You didn't think Microsoft was just going to sit there and let Apple take all the tabletmania glory today, did you?

New pics have surfaced of Microsoft's dual-screen Courier, and the book-like device seems to be dolled up a bit to compete directly against the iPad.

There are new details coming along with these pictures. It's less than inch thick, weighs slightly more than a pound, and its two screens are about the size of a 5 x 7 photo. There's supposedly a built-in camera. The best news? Its powerful NVIDIA Tegra 2 graphics processor will be driving a version of those gorgeous Zune HD and Windows Phone 7 interfaces of which we are so fond.

We're going to have to wait a while for this sultry temptress — its launch date is still pegged at somewhere between the third and fourth quarter of this year, selling for an as-yet-undisclosed price.
