Default Breaking Rumor: Microsoft To Release Xbox Powered iPad Mini Competitor Tablet?

Quote:
Microsoft may be developing a 7-inch gaming-specific Surface tablet. According to The Verge, “multiple sources familiar with plans within Redmond” have confirmed that Microsoft is currently developing an Xbox Surface tablet that “will likely include a custom ARM processor and high-bandwidth RAM designed specifically for gaming tasks.”

The sources say that the Xbox Surface specifications leaked back in June were “accurate” and that “the final implementation is being worked on.” The tablet could reportedly be altered “to accommodate an unannounced Intel SoC” and is not being designed to run a full version of Windows, but a custom Windows kernel instead.

Microsoft allegedly plans to manufacture the tablet in its own production facilities alongside the existing Surface tablets rather than using the third party manufacturing partners that build Xbox consoles. The Verge also reports that Microsoft’s recent security lockdown of its Interactive Entertainment Business buildings could also be due to testing of the Xbox Surface.

The Xbox Surface could potentially be designed to compete with Apple’s recently released iPad Mini, which has already seen big sales. We reached out to Microsoft about the Xbox Surface but were told the company doesn't comment on rumors and speculation. Until we hear more about the Xbox Surface, read our hands-on impressions of the Surface with Windows RT.

Fucking yes, this is exactly what Microsoft needs to do in order to stay with the times with the gaming part of their company, they're behind due to being cheap. Microsoft should also consider developing a handheld system.

surface is shit...it was promising when it was actually a SURFACE. Now it's just a gimmick name with not really much oomph behind it.

MS is really taking the piss lately.

Microsoft will never make a "true handheld gaming device", and why should they? They're dominating the console gaming, the PSN can't compete with XBL. Although the xbox surface sounds pretty cool!!!
