Microsoft has, now, officially released its first Windows Phone devices in India and the first three to arrive will all run on the company’s new Windows Phone 7.5 ‘Mango‘ OS. The three devices in question are HTC Radar, Samsung Omnia W and Acer Allegro, and the company believes the trio is good enough to eat into Android’s growing market share in the sub-continent, especially in India, and make Windows Phone devices the number one choice for consumers in this part of the world.

Among the three, the HTC Radar will be the first one to be available from as early as next week for a rumored price of around Rs. 23,000 (Approx. $490), while the Samsung Omnia W and Acer Allegro are all set to arrive sometime in November.

Some rumors also suggest that the Acer Allegro will be the cheapest of the lot and will retail for something around Rs. 18,000 (Approx. $400).

Microsoft has also launched Windows Phone Marketplace and voice recognition support in India officially in order to win over some hearts.

Apple makes Final Cut Pro X nicer, issues 30-day free trial too

Remember the crappiest version of Apple’s popular video editing software, the Final Cut Pro X? After being criticized on many fronts and even being mocked a lot, Apple had earlier decided to refund people unhappy with the software. Fast forward 3 months ahead and now Apple has given FCP X its first major update, and also a free 30-day trial in an attempt to win back lost users.

So, what’s new in the FCP X 10.0.1 that will re-attract the consumers? For starters, XML support has been added, allowing you to work on old projects which you previously couldn’t import in FCP X.

Among the biggest new feature to be added as part of a software update that will go out to users this morning is support for XML. This adds the option to both import and export projects in the XML format, meaning users can take XML formatted projects from Final Cut Pro 7 and other non linear editing software and work on them in Final Cut Pro X.

Apart from XML support, Apple says that multicam editing and broadcast-quality video monitoring – the two features absolutely indispensable in professional work – are coming “in early 2012″. Woot!

The product is now available to download for free as a 30-day trial, just to be on the safer side before you proceed with the $300 purchase of the full version. The trial version works for 30-days from the time it’s first launched.
