Other new devices such as the Nokia Lumia 1020 were also displayed to complement the Glass House.
The Glass House demonstrated various Windows 8.1 apps in action that are fit for every member of the family such as Halo (for gaming), Click the City (for lifestyle and entertainment guide), Bing Health & Fitness app (for fitness, nutritional, health and wellness needs), Bing Food (for recipes and cooking tips), Bing Travel (for travel planning), ABS-CBN (for news and information), and MERALCO (for utility management) among many others.
