Sony Ericsson has unveiled the LiveView, a small display with remote-control functionality that wirelessly links to the user's Android phone.
The company announced the device, which should be available in the fourth quarter of 2010, on Tuesday. 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 having to remove their phone from their pocket or bag.
The device can also be used to control music playback on Sony Ericsson Android phones such as the Xperia X10 Mini Pro, and view calendar reminders and RSS feeds. Other applications will be capable of having LiveView functionality built into them. Sony Ericsson told ZDNet UK on Wednesday that the LiveView will cost around €60 (£52).
