Sony Ericsson has introduced a Bluetooth remote control specifically for Android devices called LiveView. It’ll be available sometime in Q4 and the idea is that this 1.3-inch OLED touchscreen accessory communicates with your smartphone (via Bluetooth) for various functions such as playing music (pause/play and skip), check for incoming calls, messages, calendar reminders, Twitter/Facebook updates and RSS feeds.
A price point has not been announced and Live View works with any Android device, but has to have OS 2.0 or higher. As for specifications, Live View measures 3.5 x 3.5×1.1cm, 1.3-inch colour OLED display with a resolution of 128×128, apparently the battery lasts up to 4 days. An added feature is that Live View can attach to your wrist and look like a watch… basically it looks similar to what the guys over at Allerta want to do with their InPulse BlackBerry Watch.
We’ve got a video demo of Live View in action after the break
