Microsoft Readies Xbox Surface Tablet

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Back in June, rumors speculated that Microsoft would eventually release its own gaming tablet. Today, those reports appear confirmed, according to a report from The Verge.

The device will reportedly be an Xbox Surface tablet featuring a 7-inch display. Other specs according to a leaked document include a 1280 X 720 resolution and 288MB of RLDRAM 2.

Microsoft has increasingly moved to further invest in the tablet industry for its gaming products. In June, the company unveiled a technology called SmartGlass, providing tablet connectivity with the Xbox 360. The feature allows for new gaming controls and more.

The company’s first Surface tablet was released in late October.
