Is Microsoft Working on the Xbox Surface?

Microsoft is developing a gaming tablet, a report has suggested.
The firm is developing a 7-inch ‘Xbox Surface’ tablet designed with gaming in mind, according to The Verge.

Instead of running a version of Windows 8 like other Surface tablets, it will apparently have a custom operating system that will offer messaging and other tablet functions, but with a gaming focus.
The report states that the hardware is being developed at Microsoft’s Silicon Valley offices, and that Xbox-related buildings have been “locked down”, most likely due to increased testing.

It was added that a release is expected before the next Xbox console (Xbox 720), which is currently speculated for a late 2013.

The next Xbox console is rumoured to offer an improved Kinect device and two CPUs, one for gaming and the other for multimedia applications.
Microsoft’s Surface tablets launched last week alongside its new operating system, Windows 8.
