According to rumours in the US, Microsoft is developing another device to take on the DS Lite, the PSP and the iPod. And it isn’t Origami.
The story, originally from The Mercury News in the US, claims the device is a portable multimedia and gaming system, which they hope will have the functionality and versatility to challenge all three of the big guns in the portable market.
Author of the story, Dean Takahashi, claims that the project’s team is already in place, including Xbox system designer Greg Gibson. The machine, he says, is intended to hit the market in 2007.
I’m sure this isn’t the last we hear of it in the coming weeks and months. If we hear more, we’ll let you know.
