Just about five hours remain for Microsoft to take the covers off from its super secret press conference in Los Angeles and at least one rumor about what it could be about has been debunked. Barnes & Nobles has clarified it is not involved in Microsoft’s announcement. However, a new one has landed at our doorstep with a detailed product specsheet of what is being marketed as the Microsoft Xbox Surface. Read on for details.

According to the slide, the Xbox Surface is a 7-inch tablet with a maximum display resolution of 1280×720 pixels and will come with a stationary companion device (the Xbox, we feel) that will have 250GB disk drive, 4 USB 3.0 ports and can also connect with four wireless controllers.

This sounds awfully similar to what SmartGlass was supposed to do, a new project Microsoft had showed off at E3 earlier this month. However rather than having an app that converts smartphones and tablets into companion devices, this looks like a stand-alone companion device manufactured by Microsoft.
We are a little skeptical about this considering Microsoft could have easily shown it off at E3 itself rather than waiting for two weeks and hosting a press conference, the location for which has just been revealed to journalists covering it (Milk Studios, Hollywood, if you wanted to know). Having said that, we have seen stranger things happen in the past and this could be one of them.
