The concept is genius. Adding Xbox LIVE integration to the revamp of Microsoft’s mobile solution makes sense on so many levels. Xbox LIVE has tons of users who love the service, so to refresh their mobile platform with this service baked in was a no-brainer for Microsoft, but are the prices on Xbox LIVE-enabled Windows Phone games too high for many users? Xbox LIVE games for Windows Phone range anywhere from being free for the game Flowerz to $6.99 for titles like The Harvest and Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Ep. 1. These games are great and certainly demand a premium for their integration into Xbox LIVE, but $4.99, $5.99 and $6.99 may be a bit too steep for a title on a casual gaming platform.

A problem with locked down operating systems like Windows phone 7 and the iPhone is how to get oneâ€™s documents from the desktop onto the device.Â Traditionally the clunky method is e-mail, but the browser is another window onto oneâ€™s device, as it usually also allows one to save documents. Dave Ameta from Send to WP7 fame has created an app to take advantage of this.Â Send to WP7 Desktop is in part a desktop and the other a cloud app, which allows one to quickly send any kind of file, including photos, videos and documents to oneâ€™s phone by uploading to a free cloud service.Â It also allows one to send large text clips from the desktop which could be used for SMS or email messages.

LG is looking into explanations for this under-performance, but did not blame the OS itself.

January 27 marks one year since the world got its first look at Apple’s iPad. We all enjoyed a few feminine hygiene jokes about the name and speculated about the future of tablets, not knowing how the gadget market would receive the iPad. One year later, the iPad is a bona fide hit, no one blushes at the mention of the word “pad,” and we can’t stop talking about what the new iPad might look like.

Microsoft Research has made available for download a developer preview of its Windows Phone 7 + Cloud Services Software Development Kit (SDK) . The new SDK is related to Project Hawaii, a mobile research initiative which I've blogged about before. Hawaii is about using the cloud to enhance mobile devices. The "building blocks" for Hawaii applications/services include computation (Windows Azure); storage (Windows Azure); authentication (Windows Live ID); notification; client-back-up; client-code distribution and location (Orion). The SDK is "for the creation of Windows Phone 7 (WP7) applications that leverage research services not yet available to the general public," according to the download page. The first two services that are part of the January 25 SDK are Relay and Rendezvous .
