The Sony Ericsson LiveView Android remote control — which lets users view notification messages without needing to access their handset — is now available to pre-order in the UK.

The remote — which is listed on Amazon UK with a retail price of £55.99 — is due to be released on Monday and acts as a second display for compatible Android phones.

LiveView has a 1.3-inch colour OLED display, connects via Bluetooth and charges via microUSB. The remote will show incoming call alerts, messages, calendar information and RSS updates.

It also allows users to control music playback, browse Twitter and Facebook status updates and provides a standard 3.5mm audio socket for connecting headphones for music playback. It also allows users to access the Android Market to download new apps.

The Android remote will work with Sony Ericsson's X10 family of Android handsets but is also compatible with other manufacturers' devices, including the HTC Desire, Desire Z, HTC/Google Nexus One running Android 2.2 and the HTC Wildfire on Android 2.1.

The Motorola Milestone 2.0.1, Milestone XT720 and the Samsung Galaxy S will also work with the remote. Motorola says that the viewer should work with most Android 2.0 and newer devices.
