Xbox Smartglass 10 minute hands-on demo

Betanews have posted to 9.5 minute hands-on video of the SmartGlass application running on Windows Phone ( a Nokia Lumia 900) and also a Windows tablet.

The video demoes both game play and music control, and it is interesting that it offers a different experience on tablet and the phone while still being synchronized between 3 devices.

The video also demoes “Pick up and play”, a feature that will synchronize game levels and positions between the phone and other Xbox Live devices, such as tablets and PCs.  This is in fact a feature which I have not heard much about before, but which has of course been promised for a long time.

I suspect SmartGlass will actually increase the use of the Xbox 360. Now all I need is an automatic HDMI switcher 😉
