"First the power went out Wednesday night, and when it came back up, Microsoft Corp. Chief Executive Steve Ballmer did little to add to the electricity.

Ballmer’s keynote address here the night before the International Consumer Electronics Show opens Thursday morning was highly anticipated after The New York Times quoted unnamed sources as saying Ballmer would announce a radical new tablet computer, which would be developed with Hewlett-Packard Co.

The speculation was that it would be the Courier, a miniature Internet device, or MID. Purported images of the Courier created a major buzz when they emerged in September — the Courier would be unlike any other MID on the market, boasting two iPhone-like multi-touch screens in a book-like 7-inch package."
