Chatter of a 7-inch Xbox Surface tablet has reawakened, with sources claiming Microsoft is currently working in the initial hardware planning stages for a gaming-centric slate built on a custom Windows OS.

A Microsoft Durango developer kit reportedly emerged on a developper forum over the weekend, commanding a sale price of $10,000.
