Sony Ericsson ‘LiveView’ For Android and Bluetooth Devices

Sony Ericsson announced a unique new accessory for Android, a Bluetooth-connected 1.3″ screen called “LiveView” which can be used to control and interact with apps on your phone remotely. Similar to new iPod Nano, LiveView is a small square screen with a clip on the back. Unlike Nano, however, the tiny 1.3″ OLED display isn’t touch-enabled. Instead, the border of the screen acts as touch pane, and the chassis has action buttons on it. It isn’t a standalone device, and must be paired with an Android 2.0+ smartphone, it can then access dozens of apps.


LiveView can control Media Player (Play, Pause, Fwd, Back, Volume +/-,) can access Facebook, Twitter, and RSS feeds, display incoming text messages, show caller ID and mute ringer on incoming calls, display call list, provide calendar reminders, or simply show the time. Select markets will also have access to an “Experience Pack” which includes exercise-specific functionality for LiveView later this year.

Sony Ericsson also developed an app manager called “LiveWare Manager” that scans Android Market for apps compatible with LiveView, and lists them for the user.
