Default Microsoft reportedly working on a 7-inch Xbox Surface tablet

Here’s an interesting rumor: According to one of The Verge’s unnamed sources, Microsoft is working on a 7-inch Xbox-branded Surface tablet. This rumor isn’t all that far-fetched, given that the Surface is Microsoft’s new premium hardware brand, and it isn’t the first time we’ve heard this rumor either.

The Xbox Surface reportedly features an ARM processor – or possibly one of Intel’s System-on-a-Chip (SoC) designs with a custom Windows kernel. While the device will most likely support entertainment and messaging features, gaming will be the primary focus.

Apple recently introduced a 7-inch iPad Mini to compete with the numerous 7-inch Android tablets like the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD. But, at the moment, there are no Windows-based tablets available in that size.

Do you think Microsoft is planning an Xbox Surface? And, more importantly, would you pick one up?

Microsoft Xbox MVP. Long live Zune!

I'm happy with my Android tablet, and my Windows 7 desktop and laptop. No Surface for me, in either size.
