Microsoft's Mystery Device: Possible Answer to the Magic Trackpad?

If there is one universal constant in the tech world, it’s that Microsoft doesn’t have much of a sense of humour, usually preferring to be all frowny-faced and bland in its delivery of product news. But this… this is downright cryptic.

Over the past few days, Microsoft Hardware’s Twitter account has been hinting at a new product by posting fragments of a JPG. What it is is anyone’s guess, and the Twitter feed has only this to say: “Don’t be so touchy… flat is where it’s at.” Above are the two images stitched together.

Is this a possible answer to Apple’s Magic Trackpad? That could be the side of a keyboard there on the left. Perhaps it’s a new tablet device altogether? A phone? We’ve been promised another hint today, so everyone stay tuned – we’ve a bit of a mystery afoot.

    Microsoft is teasing, making it look hot.
    Good try Micosoft, but I think most people don’t give a damn.
    There’s nothing wrong with their hardware, but don’t bring new stuff as it is something people were waiting for.
