Sony Ericsson LiveView Turns As Remote Control for Smartphone

Sony Ericsson yesterday announced the Sony Ericsson LiveView, an innovative accessory which offers a total product experience and enhanced mobile possibilities. Its tiny display with remote control functionality expose the activities of your mobile phone, powered by Android. Sony Ericsson LiveView allows the user to control the Sony Ericsson music features of the handset like selecting tracks and controlling volume from the tiny display.

The Sony Ericsson LiveView is the first Sony Ericsson accessory to be compatible with the open Android platform. So creative users can develop innovative applications with the help of third-party developer integration.

You can clip this device to your wrist, shirt, pocket or any note book, virtually any where you want.

Sony Ericsson LiveView uses the Bluetooth connectivity to wirelessly pair up to a compatible handset and allows consumers to control the phone. There’s an Android app you can install on your phone that’ll get it to communicate with the 128 x 128 pixel grid, so users will be able to control many of their phones’ key features like find your phone, read text messages, see incoming calls and get latest updates of Facebook and Twitter. The tiny screen also displays calendar reminder and events.
