Reports around the Internet are surfacing that show an alleged leaked Microsoft press release about an Xbox-branded tablet.
Supposedly named Xbox Surface, the document details a tablet with 7-inch screen and impressive technical specifications that I’m not going to attempt to decode (you can see the full details below). It apparently also supports “up to 4 wireless game controllers”, if it is in fact real.

Microsoft is holding a press conference today in Los Angeles, and speculation has been circulating for a while that it may unveil a Windows tablet device. TechCrunchreckons it will unveil an e-reader in partnership with bookstore chain Barnes and Noble, where MCV has rounded up rumours about a gadget capable of streaming Xbox Live content. If Xbox Surface is real – and there’s no guarantee – then it might be announced later today, at 3.30PM LA time (11.30PM BST).
This follows the release of a 56-page document onto the Internet that claimed to be Microsoft’s roadmap for the Xbox business up until 2015, containing information on the next Xbox console’s price and specifications.
