Microsoft plans 7-inch Xbox tablet

Microsoft has been entering the hardware market more and more aggressively lately by announcing new devices quite often. The latest one is the Surface tablet – but it seems a new Microsoft gaming device – a 7-inch Xbox tablet, will soon follow it.

Microsoft has not shared any information on such a tablet so the information here is still unofficial but numerous other sources on the Internet are pretty confident that gamers around the world will soon see this tablet in their hands. Hardware specs are unknown – but the tablet is said to come with a 7-inch display.

According to a certain source close to the software giant, Microsoft will develop the tablet independently from any specific hardware architecture with the questionable 7-inch gaming tablet appearing before the next Xbox gaming console – the Xbox 720. In addition the tablet is expected to not run a full version of Windows – but it should feature Microsoft’s SmartGlass technology, which allows gamers to use touchscreen devices such as smartphones or tablets as secondary screens while playing.
