Microsoft Planning Handheld?

Speaking at a conference organised by the Wall Street Journal in California yesterday, Microsoft chairman Bill Gates has made comments implying that the firm may be preparing new initiatives in the portable device space.

"We are looking at various ways to bring more to that space," he commented in response to questioning about a possible portable media device, according to a report published by ZDNet. "There is a lot yet that hasn't been done."

However, his direct response to the question - which focused on the portable system that J Allard is allegedly working on with the Xbox team, according to journalist and author Dean Takahashi - was simply that "I have no announcement to make today."
