PHONING THE XBOX: An upcoming upgrade of Microsoft Corp.’s phone software will connect to the company’s popular Xbox game console. In an example shown during a Monday demonstration, Xbox players were able to use their mobile phones to contribute to the action.

THAT’S NOT ALL: Microsoft also is planning to include a faster Web browser in later upgrade, as a technology that enables quicker “multitasking” between third-party applications.

THE GOAL: Microsoft is scrambling to catch up to Apple Inc.’s iPhone and phones running on Google Inc.’s Android software.
