I know, I know, I have been writing about SmartGlass quite often the past couple months, but this will probably be the last one (That is a lie). Android devices managed to score Microsoft’s SmartGlass app on the day of Windows 8 release, most of them anyway, and now it’s Apple’s turn! Microsofts SmartGlass is now available to iOS Devices, which include iPads and iPhones.
So Windows 8 is finally here and I got it day one. Typically I like to wait a bit before things get released and get the latest reviews. But the deals for Windows 8 Pro were too good to pass up, especially on Amazon. We already have an article on what to expect from Windows 8, so does this new operating system change the way you’ll use Windows? Or is it Windows ME and Vista all over again?
With Microsoft releasing surface and Windows 8 in the next coming months more and more info has been spilling out to give customers an idea of what they are in for. SmartGlass, if you’re unaware, is an “app” that will connect all your digital devices together even if it’s a refurbished cell phone. So they will feel more like limbs of a single device, as oppose to devices connected via bluetooth. The idea goes along with Windows 8 new metro design that will be across all windows device. Such as their phones, tablets, PC and even the Xbox (which was updated today with a quasi Windows 8 look). But what is the first SmartGlass app to surface this coming year?
Some new things at E3 will work with both used and refurbished cell phones, which is a great surprise! A couple days ago I let you all in on what Nintendo showed off at this years E3, the Wii U tablet controller console. One question I asked was what Microsoft or Sony’s response would be to this game changer. Well, seems Microsoft didn’t just have a response, they had a counter! Microsoft has really been pushing the Xbox as an all around media hub for your household, but it normally stopped in your livingroom… Not if Microsoft has anything to say about it.
