Microsoft surfaces awesome tablet prototype, Origami redux?

Gizmodo was given a peek at a very cool “Courier” tablet prototype from Microsoft’s Pioneer Studios, a design R&D group in the same division as Zune and Xbox.

I wonder if this one will become a product. Actually the bigger question is whether any product will be closer to the original Courier vision than Ultra-Mobile PCs were to the Origami concepts that created so much buzz back in 2006.
