Microsoft recently launched Windows 8, and their first tablet, the Microsoft Surface,
we already know that Microsoft has plans to produce more hardware under
their Surface brand, as this was confirmed by the company’s CEO, Steve
Now according to a recent report by the Verge, one of
these new devices under the Surface brand, will be a smaller 7 inch
Surface tablet, which is designed for gaming, and may come with the name of the Xbox Surface.
Xbox Surface tablet is expected to feature an ARM based processor, and
it isn;t expected to run a full version of Windows, instead it will run a
custom Windows kernel with the focus on gaming, but with other features
like messaging and more.
Microsoft branding the device under
their Xbox brand is a smart move, if they are trying to sell a gaming
orientated tablet, then what better way than to tie it into their
already popular Xbox gaming brand.
There are no details as yet on
when Microsoft intend to launch their Xbox Surface tablet, as soon as we
get some further information we will let you guys know.
