Gadget News : Microsoft might release 7-inch tablet this season

Gadget News - Microsoft might be entering the 7-inch tablet industry in the long run within an effort to challenge the kind of the Nexus 7, mini and Kindle Fire HD. In line with the The Wall Street Journal, the Windows 8 inventor is apparently working on a brand new, smaller line-up of tablets under later this season the name that'll get into mass production.

According to among the resources, Microsoft's decision to move ahead with a tablet is in direct reaction to cheaper and smaller rivals. Even though expert company IDC says half tablet revenue in-the first-quarter is likely to be smaller than 8 inches, a 7-incher apparently was not even yet in Microsoft's programs a year ago. Microsoft's present Surface includes a 10.6-inch screen.

Studies of a Surface come at any given time that Redmond is probably spinning from an IDC statement that says PC deliveries experienced the greatest fall actually throughout the first-quarter. The company put a lot of the responsibility on Windows 8, whose radially new software hasn't won over many consumers.

We've heard whispers of the 7-inch 'X-box Surface' tablet before, however the Journal's report didn't mention any integration with Microsoft's gaming system. In November sources knowledgeable about Redmond's ideas established to The Verge that preliminary planning an Surface 7-inch tablet was in-the works. These resources also allegedly said the tablet won't work a complete version of Windows, but rather would have a custom Windows kernel.

Nevertheless, today's statement suggests that Microsoft might be more centered on maintaining your competition instead of creating a video game-oriented tablet. Microsoft has yet to talk about the issue, however the company recently modified the Windows 8 specification to support a 1024 x 768 screen resolution for smaller tablets.
