Thompson denies Xbox handheld

Speaking to technology magazine T3, Xbox’s head of Northern and Eastern Europe Neil Thompson stated: “We’re not even thinking about that at the moment. Handhelds, in the way you would think about a handheld like PSP? No.”

Speculation that Microsoft is looking to enter the portable sector has been steadily increasing for some time. These rumours were fuelled last week thanks to claims made by author Dean Takahashi that a large proportion of the Xbox team is currently hard at work on a handheld project.

Speculation spiked recently when it become apparent Microsoft was on the verge of announcing a portable system codenamed Origami, though that transpired to be a tablet PC manufactured by Samsung.
