Microsoft’s SmartGlass for Android app has just hit version 1.5 thanks to a fresh update on Google Play. The app, which lets users control their XBox via a smartphone or tablet, will now be optimized to work on 7-inch and larger Android tablets. Other new features include an (unfortunately-worded) “always-on” Smartglass Experiences state, which actually just prevents your handset or slate from sleeping while they’re running, along with bug fixes and “numerous design and usability improvements.” We’ll have to give it a further play to see if there’s anything juicy buried in the latter, but meanwhile, you can grab it at the break.

When T-Mobile announced it would certainly carry the LG Optimus L9 earlier today, I bemoaned the carrier ’ s do not have of compelling special gadgets. As it turns out, that could have been a bit rash of me — Nokia has just let slip that its new Windows Phone 8-powered Lumia 810 will hit T-Mobile ’ s shelves in the coming weeks.
As the name implies, the Lumia 810 is a mildly-tweaked variation of the Lumia 820 that competing carrier AT&T will carry later this year. Many of the device ’ s basics stay the exact same — it still sports a 4.3-inch OLED Clear Black display (running at WVGA, for better or worse), Nokia ’ s slew of software additions, and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera — but the 810 is undoubtedly tuned to play nice with T-Mobile ’ s 4G network. Exactly what ’ s more, the 810 ′ s Skype HD certified 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera is just a hair more sturdy than the VGA shooter utilized on the 820.
The Lumia 820 (and by extension, the 810) was positioned by Nokia as even more of a mid-range gadget in contrast to the flagship Lumia 920, however T-Mobile ’ s Windows Phone fans are most likely used to getting stuck with the mid-range treatment. After all, the last Nokia Windows Phone to hit that carrier ’ s magenta-tinged airwaves was the fairly dull Lumia 710 — not a bad phone by any type of stretch, but it came to look chintzy and unrefined compared with Nokia ’ s favored Lumia 900.
Just as you ’ d anticipate, T-Mobile isn ’ t ready to chat rate points just yet however I wouldn ’ t expect to pay much at all. Considering the 710 ′ s reasonable starting rate tag ( and the reality that a lot of stores ended up selling for free of charge), the shiny new 810 it shouldn ’ t ding your wallet too much with a two-year contract.

Fujitsu Arrows F-07D nabs ‘thinnest smartphone’ title, Droid Razr retorts: ‘real phones have (some) curves’
Japan’s NTT DOCOMO just announced a March 31st retail offering of LG’s Optimus Pad. The Honeycomb tablet listed as model L-06C is the same 8.9-inch 1280 x 768 pixel slab known as the G-Slate ’round T-Mobile subscribers. Besides its 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor and internationally compatible 3G data and GPS, the Optimus Pad’s most noteworthy features are the stereoscopic rear-facing video cameras capable of 1080p 3D capture which you can viewed directly on the L-06C with a pair of passive glasses. Unfortunately, NTT DOCOMO is mum on pricing. Remember, although T-Mobile originally hedged with a spring launch (recently rumored for April 20th), LG told us that it’d be arriving on US soil in March. So… T-Mobile, anything you’d like to add before Thursday?

We were pretty sure Acer’s Iconia Tab would be riding Big Red — you know, given the LTE modem and Verizon apps on board — but it looks like the company will also support America’s GSM juggernaut with a “4G” radio on board. AT&T just announced that the Acer Iconia Tab A501 will bring the 10.1-inch Honeycomb form factor and dual-core 1GHz Tegra 250 processor to its network sometime in Q2, giving the carrier a Android rival to Sprint’s HTC EVO View 4G, T-Mobile’s LG G-Slate, and of course Verizon’s Motorola Xoom. How many Benjamins will it take to bring one home? Now that, my friends, is the question. PR after the break.

Look, we get it. You sunk $ 87,342.12 into a Sonos whole-home streaming solution, and your buds won’t stop pestering you about its inability to stream XM Radio. Thankfully, the stars have aligned just in time for your impending Super Bowl bash, and it’s just about time for you to start fantasizing about what their faces will look like when they’re ushered into your adobe by Heart-Shaped Box. Thanks to the eagle-eyed Dave Zatz, it looks as if some sort of final blending has gone down between Sirius and XM, with a merging of accounts (presumably) making it possible for Sonos to now stream XM Radio; if you’ll recall, the system has had the ability to stream dedicated Sirius channels for a good while now, but particular XM stations have been left out of the mix prior to this weekend. Hit the source link to find out what password changes are needed to get things in sync, and be sure to try it all out before bragging to said buds — wouldn’t want to eat crow after taking all of that flack, now would you?
It sounds like all of NVIDIA’s wrangling and cajoling finally paid off, if a couple of analysts are to be believed — both say the company’s dual-core Tegra 2 chipset is racking up wins in the tablet space. We’ve seen it seemingly raise the bar for smartphone silicon in the LG Star and tease us in slate after slate, but Citigroup’s Glen Yeung says that Samsung has “placed a sizeable order with Nvidia for Tegra 2 chips in the first half of 2011, geared for both tablets and smartphones,” and BMO Capital Markets analyst Ambrish Srivastava anticipates the next Galaxy Tab will be one of the devices that use it. If that sounds obvious, remember that Samsung was supposed to be producing a dual-core chip of its own. What could cause companies to embrace Tegra 2, if that’s indeed what’s happening? Any number of reasons, to be sure, but Glen Yeung also says that Google has made Tegra the reference design for Honeycomb, aka Android 3.0, and so Tegra 2 may sound like a fast track to victory in the budding tablet space. Here’s hoping it’s a good choice for consumers, too.
We’re still slightly bummed that Peter Jackson never made Halo, but this should patch things up a tad — the Lord of the Rings director will film The Hobbit in 3D entirely on thirty hand-machined RED EPIC cameras, starting early next year. That’s the news straight from RED founder Jim Jannard, but that’s not all, as a limited number of pre-production EPIC packages will be available to early adopters as well. $ 58,000 buys your deep-pocketed budding director a machined EPIC-M body, titanium PL mount, Bomb EVF and 5-inch touchscreen LCD, a REDmote, a four-pack of batteries, a charger and a solid state storage module with a four-pack of 128GB SSDs. Jannard expects to hand-assemble that first batch of 5K imagers in December or January, start the real assembly lines a month after that, and hopefully have widespread availability by NAB in April, though he’s not making any promises there. That’s how RED rolls. PR after the break.
