Only for demonstration purposes
We are only a few hours away from Microsoft's media event where it is expected the software giant will take the wraps off their own tablet running Windows 8. We have now seen leaked specs on an Xbox Surface tablet. Could this be Microsoft's tablet or is this a completely different device?
According to the specs that have surfaced on the Xbox Surface the tablet will sport a 7" 1280x720 screen, SD card support and Bluetooth/Wifi radios. There is also indications that the Surface will have four USB ports, an ethernet port, and HDMI port.
Note when reading the specs: there are TWO devices, one tablet and one "stationary". Don't confuse the two.
Again, we don't know if the Xbox Surface is what we'll see at today's Microsoft's media event but it does look like an interesting device. What makes this all a bit more interesting is LiveSide has attained a second document that has the same Xbox Surface branding, corroborating the story.
Hit the break for page two of the leaked specs and take note that under Tablet Device (Controller) specs there mention of "Kinect Workloads". Could the Xbox Surface have Kinect motion technologies built in?
Update: We should also not that Barnes & Noble are not a part of tonight's announcement, lending credence to this idea a bit more
