As we know well from the run up to Windows Phone 7, a lot of info can leak via Microsoft’s job postings.

In this case its the explicit mention of Microsoft Courier on a job site by Thomas Kohnstamm, which was then rapidly deleted.

The post mentions:

Do you already know everything about Project Natal and the Cloud? Is Blaise Aguera y Arcas’ jaw-dropping TED talk on augmented-reality Bing Maps and Photosynth last month’s news? Then check out some of the online chatter surrounding new releases of Window Phone 7 series handsets, Internet Explorer 9 and the upcoming Courier digital journal."

… and also mentions Courier in its tags.

Of course it may just be an over-enthusiastic marketer taking advantage of the recent Microsoft buzz, but we can hold out hope.

Take a look at the Courier mockup video below again after the break.  Interestingly, looking at it through Windows Phone 7 eyes, its actually quite striking that the feature we find most exciting about the OS is the liberal use of cut and paste and multi-tasking.  Of course with 2 screens it does make a lot more sense…
