Not unless you count Windows Phone. I doubt they would bother at this point. Smart phones/tablets are taking over mobile gaming, and none of Microsoft's entries into that world have paid off.

Probably not, the Xbox itself isn't financially profitable enough for them to consider it, especially when they'd be tackling the likes of the 3DS which in my opinion has had the best year of all the consoles.
