The Examiner has it that Microsoft will be entering the world of tablet services with the ‘Xbox Smart Glass’ tablet, a device that will be shown behind closed doors to select media at E3 next week.
The tablet will reportedly feature and allow the following:
- Will allow users to control their Xbox 360 remotely. Will be available cross platform on multiple operating systems including Windows, Windows Phone, Android and iOS.
- Applications will be accessible through the tablet. Such as Youtube/Netflix/Vemo ect.
- Live streaming ability through the tablet to the TV, desktop, lap top and other devices.
- A demo at E3 will be shown, but no live video will be featured
The report over on the Examiner suggests that the presence of the tablet probably explains why a next-gen Xbox isn’t at E3. We’re not so sure. Let’s see where this one goes.
