Taking a look at the quick video demo of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc from yesterday shows a new accessory as well. We have confirmed that the Sony Ericsson “LiveView” is coming to Canada and will hopefully drop sometime in Q1. No word on a price point for this yet.
The LiveView is an Android-based Bluetooth remote control that works with any Android device with OS 2.0 or higher (not just Sony Ericsson devices). You can wear LiveView as a watch or clip onto your jacket and it has a 1.3-inch OLED touchscreen display (resolution of 128×128) that gives you the ability to perform various functions such as playing music (pause/play and skip), check for incoming calls, messages, calendar reminders, Twitter/Facebook updates and RSS feeds.
