Rumor: Steve Ballmer to Unveil HP's E-Reading, Multitouch Tablet TomorrowS

According to NYT Bits, Microsoft big boss Steve Ballmer will unveil a brand-spanking-new tablet PC developed in conjunction with HP at tomorrow's CES keynote address. And, like some other fabled tablets, it's said to have both multitouch and e-Reader capabilities.

The story goes onto say that the still unnamed tablet will be released in mid-2010 and subtly hints that it could even be related to the Courier tablet concepts we reported on this past September at Gizmodo Gallery. But for now, HP and Microsoft are being hush-hush about the thing, so we'll have to wait and see until tomorrow. [Bits via Engadget]
