SonyEricsson LiveView – Android ‘watch’


SonyEricsson LiveView   Android watch

SonyEricsson have announced a new accessory – a bluetooth remote/touchscreen called LiveView.

Its a 1.3″ colour touchsceen that can be worn on your wrist like a watch, but is connected to your Android phone, displaying messages, status updates, incoming phone numbers. 

It works on Android 2.0 or above, and will be released at the same time as Sony’s 2.1 updates for their Android phones (Q4 officially) – well it would be a bit cheeky to release it before they get round to that ;)

 

Update – Sony have put up a page on their website showing more detail. Link Sony website page
