Microsoft Still Considering an Xpod?

The San Jose Mercury's Dean Takahashi dug up some information for an upcoming book and states that Microsoft is planning a game and media handheld for around 2007 aimed directly and Nintendo, Sony and Apple's similar products. This isn't the first time such rumors have floated, although they were recently associated with the Origami ... a connection which now seems unfit for the new Tablet PC.

Course, in consumer electronic terms ... 2007 is a long way away. Sony is supposedly rolling out a new PSP for Christmas and Nintendo will have it's DS Lite and even more titles for it's increasingly popular wifi service. With Microsoft starting to show a little Nintendo creativity with Viva Pinata and more hardware design experience under it's belt ... should be interesting.
