Microsoft to Reportedly Challenge iPad Mini With 7-inch Xbox Surface
The competition in the 7-inch tablet market is heating up, with Microsoft reportedly eager to secure its share. According to sources cited by The Verge, Microsoft is indeed working on a 7-inch gaming tablet.
However, as the leaked information reveals, Microsoft thinks you will likely use a smaller tablet mostly for gaming, as the Xbox Surface tablet will include a custom ARM chip and high-bandwidth RAM designed for gaming, yet this is subject to change before the device is announced.
Also, the 7-inch Surface tablet won’t run a full version of Windows, but a custom Windows kernel, keeping some of the tablet functions such as Messaging.
Looks like gaming on tablets sounds interesting for Microsoft. Are you interested in getting a gaming 7-inch Surface tablet for yourself?
