SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: February 3, 2012

Another week has come to a close, but not before we had a chance to catch up on the big news of the day, like this one - the Android@Home prototype as an entertainment device for the home. In addition, the Windows Phone Marketplace has just launched in five new countries.

Featured: Check out our review of the ms01 Monitor Series to see what we thought of it. Also, our Chris Davies takes a hands-on look at RBS 6 Nations Live Challenge app. The sports app is available for iPad, iPhone, Android, and Facebook.

Apple: We've got some news regarding Apple's newest digital books platform: Apple updates iBooks author EULA terms to address content ownership concerns. And on the Apple-branded TV front - Apple iTV pushed back as IGZO panels unready for shipment.

Miscellaneous: Hey, here's a fun stat - Smartphones outpace PCs for the first time in Q4 2011. And for the "how could that happen?" files, we heard about refurbished Xoom tablets, sold on Woot.com, that contain previous owner data. Talk about a train wreck. And on that subject, some Yahoo news - the once formidable search giant has launched new search tools for iOS and Android, making it easier to find apps. Well, that's all for tonight. Have a good weekend!
