Microsoft will reveal the Xbox Smart Glass Tablet, according to the Examiner. The device won't be shown on stage at the Microsoft presser though. Rumors indicate this tablet will only be shown to a select group of people, most likely publishers.
Keep reading to see a bunch of the Xbox Smart Glass' rumored specs.
- Xbox Smart Glass is a companion application for Xbox LIVE that will allow users to control their Xbox (e.g., transport controls, content discovery and search). The Xbox Smart Glass companion application will be optimized for Windows Tablets and Phones and also made available to iOS/Android Tablets and Phones.
- Activities will be made available within the Xbox Smart Glass companion application. Activities will be tied to existing and new applications on Xbox (e.g., Zune Music will have an activity). Microsoft will supposedly demo Xbox Smart Glass experiences for nearly all of their major brand partners at E3 (existing plus new partners).
- The Xbox Smart Glass companion application will have the ability to play video on Tablets/Phones and send the videos to Xbox to play on the TV.
- Additionally, M'Soft will demo Xbox Smart Glass capabilities, but at no time will it show any video content playing on a Tablet/Phone device.
This is 100% a rumor, and one without a ton of evidence or trusted sources, so take it as such. Microsoft has been absent from the tablet market so it would makes sense to offer their own.
