Sony Ericsson unveils LiveView: A small wireless Android viewer

Sony Ericsson has unveiled the LiveView, a small display with remote-control functionality that wirelessly links to the user's Android phone. The device, currently powered with Android 2.0 Operating system, displays and controls tasks ranging from text messages and music playback to Facebook and Twitter updates.

The LiveView uses Bluetooth to pair with a handset, allowing the user to read text messages, see incoming calls and view Facebook and Twitter updates without the need to take out the phone. The device is quite small, having 1.3 inch OLED display screen and 128X128 pixel resolution, can be comfortably put on the wrist, just like a wrist watch.

Live View can control music playback on select Sony Ericsson Android phones such as the Xperia X10 Mini Pro, and view calendar reminders and RSS feeds. Other useful applications will be incorporated with Live View in coming days and months.

LiveView will cost around €60 (£52). The device, should be available in the fourth quarter of 2010. --------
