Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced their iPhone 4 at the keynote speech of the WWDC, which is currently underway in San Francisco. The phone and accompanying OS, which will now be known as iOS 4, are all set for release later this month.

Gizmodo let loose the first details, images, and video from the still-in-prototype stage tablet PC, the Courier. I actually use the term ‘tablet’ loosely because it is actually two 7”-inch, multi-touch screens hinged at the middle to form a book of sorts.

If Microsoft gets this off the ground Apple will have one extremely difficult foe to face off against in the tablet market. See more images of Courier, After the Break! Via Gizmodo

Its not that the game did not seem like it would be entertaining or well-done, I just had so many other games on my mind at that moment it was pushed aside.
