Microsoft Betting On a mini Tablet/eBook hybrid

Anonymous Patron writes Microsoft-Watch Is Reporting on a mini-Tablet that can do everything that a traditional Tablet PC can do, plus store electronic books, that could end up as the new gadget on which Microsoft is betting to further Tablet PC momentum. A prototype of a new device — described by sources as a type of hybrid Tablet PC/eBook — has been making its way around the Microsoft Redmond campus, according to sources. The mini-Tablet, which measures about six inches by eight inches and features a digitizer, is just one of a number of new Tablet form factors expected to debut in the coming months.”
