Xbox Surface tablet in the works?

Microsoft is said to be working on an Xbox Surface tablet, according to the Verge.

The device, which would be designed specifically for gaming, is rumoured to feature a 7-inch display and will run on a gaming-centric version of Windows.

This will be a spin-off of the 10-inch Surface tablet that Microsoft has just released.

Microsoft is keeping tight-lipped about the whispers. “We don’t comment on rumours or speculation,” said a Microsoft representative.

Back in June, an alleged hardware document for an Xbox Surface tablet emerged, showing that the 7-inch tablet will include an ARM-based Texas instruments processor, 288MB of RAM, and a 1280 x 720 resolution.

The document also stated that the device will work in conjunction with a “stationary computing device”, possibly alluding the next Xbox console.

Microsoft have also introduced the SmartGlass application, which will utilise various tablets with the current Xbox 360 systems, but having a dedicated gaming tablet for the purpose looks to be the company’s next move.
