I’ve been waiting for something like the Sony Ericsson Liveview for quite some time and am extremely excited that it will soon be out in the United States. It will work with any Android Phone, has an SDK so devs can build interesting apps that work with it, and its already got a bunch of downloads available such as SportyPal to track your fitness endeavors.
We told you about the Liveview a couple days ago but wanted to share the promo video Sony Ericsson just posted:
I have a review unit from Sony Ericsson so I’m eager to start downloading apps for it and testing it out. I’ll have a full review once I get back from Barcelona and have had some time to fully develop an opinion.
Wear it as a watch, take it on a bike ride, hold it while you’re running, keep it on your desk – it’s so small yet the screen is large enough to bring you important information and updates that you don’t need your full phone to view. The Motorola Atrix has really sparked an interest in Android accessories and the usefulness and affordability of the Liveview has me particularly interested.
I think affordability is a key word when discussing accessories. While the Motorola Atrix docks and laptop are cool, I think of popular accessories as extras and paying as much for your accessories as your phone seems counter-intuitive. What affordable Android accessories would you like to see pop up on the mass market?
