  • We are going to get more details about SmartGlass in a bit. He didn't explain it much. From what we know, you can use your tablet as a second screen for games. It gives you a different UI experience (like how the Nintendo DS had a second screen)
  • Confirmed: SmartGlass is what it is supposed to be: a new UI to play with games using touch screen. More info will be released on the 26th with the USA launch.
