Rumors of a Xbox Surface, a 7-inch gaming tablet have been making the rounds. According to The Verge, Microsoft has started initial hardware planning for the gaming tablet. Specifications for the rumored tablet had been leaked back in June and according to sources are spot on.

Similar to the Wii U, the Xbox Surface will be a 7-inch tablet accompanying a stationary base station. It will possibly include a custom ARM processor and high-bandwidth RAM, but may changed to accomodate an Intel SoC. The Xbox Surface won’t be running a full version of Windows, rather a custom Windows kernel focused on gaming.
