Microsoft is reportedly working on a 7-inch Xbox Surface tablet that will focus on gaming, according to The Verge.

The Xbox Surface will likely include a custom ARM processor and high-bandwidth RAM designed specifically for gaming tasks. We're told these specifications could be altered to accommodate an unannounced Intel SoC and that the Xbox Surface is being developed independent of specific hardware architecture. Microsoft's Xbox Surface won't run a full version of Windows, rather this 7-inch tablet will run a custom Windows kernel. Messaging and other tablet functions may be supported, but the focus is on gaming.

The company is said to have recently locked down several buildings limiting employee access to the Interactive Entertainment Business division as secret testing of the tablet intensifies.

Microsoft refused to comment on speculation and rumors.

At least it would be cheaper than Apple tablets.

As if they aren't facing enough of an uphill battle trying to compete with Apple and Google, now they're flooding the market with different alternatives. Good luck, you're going to need it if you hope to sell more than a handful!
