WSJ.com - Microsoft Studies Portable Device For Videogames

WSJ.com - Microsoft Studies Portable Device For Videogames: "Microsoft Corp. is considering developing a portable game device that would further pit the company against Sony Corp. and Nintendo Co. in an increasingly important sector of the videogames business, according to people familiar with the matter.
The Redmond, Wash., software company could release the device as early as the end of the year, but it may end up deciding on a later launch date, these people said. The product is being planned by the group within Microsoft responsible for the company's Xbox console. The product may also allow users to play music and videos, a move that would put the device in competition with Apple Computer Inc.'s iPod."
