ScanSearch Augmented Reality Application coming to Windows Phone 7

Remember a few days ago I posted about the possibility of seeing Augmented Reality applications on Windows Phone 7 before the end of the year. If you have taken a close attention at all the LG E900media you may have noticed that a particular application seems to be pre-installed on LG’s WP7 handset. The first video was super blurry but the ones posted today reveal that the name of this application is actually ScanSearch:

ScanSearch is an augmented reality application developed by Korean Software Company OlaWorks (whos CEO was previously Managing Director, Online Services Group and GM, Consumer and Online Business at Microsoft) and currently available on the iPhone. I’m guessing that LG has some sort of partnership with Olaworks to develop the Windows Phone 7 version (Olaworks already supplies LG with a Face detection Suite ). As you probably already know there’s no digital Compass API currently available for third-party developers in the SDK but it apparently isn’t the case for OEMs. Check out a video of the iPhone after the break:

SimplyCube 3D exporter for Windows Phone 7

SimplySim has just released a teaser video for their 3D software solution that enables users to export their 3D scenes directly to Windows Phone 7 (and other devices). It is basically comparable to the Nova4Phone application we saw a couple of days before. The teaser video looks really cool but it would be interesting to see how it actually performs on a real device. SimplySim also developed the 3D assembly application I posted about not long ago. Check out the video below:

New LG E900 pictures and videos

Here are more pictures a two blurry videos of the upcoming LG E900 Windows Phone 7 handset. The polish site who is publishing them initially claimed (or had a dodgy translation..) that the device was powered by a QSD8650A (the new version clocked at 1.3Ghz and with the Adreno 205 GPU) but has since corrected it back to QSD8650 so we still aren’t 100% of the internals of the device. Remember that the only other device that was rumored to have the new chipset was/is the HTC Mondrian. Other than that the E900 features a 3.7″ screen and all the usual stuff that come with such a device (they claim that it has a mini-usb connector which isn’t the case because it’s micro-usb like all other handsets shipping this year..). Check out the gallery and videos after the break:

Android isn’t Free ? Anything new we didn’t already know ?

Business Insider has been running a series of “linkbait” articles lately about Windows Phone 7 and Android. The first one titled “Microsoft’s mobile business is now little more than a fantasy” was followed today by an other one titled “Hey, Android People, Is It True That The All-In Cost Of Android Is Much Higher Than $15 Per Unit?”. You see this is how things work: first you trash a product then post a follow up defending it to please both sides and generate maximum traffic. The second one is rather interesting because Henri Blognet has supposedly a close Microsoft source parroting what I, others and Microsoft Execs have been saying all along: Android isn’t free.
