The Sony Ericsson LiveView Android accessory has popped up on the Canadian SE site. We knew this was coming to Canada when we got a sneak peak at the Xperia arc back in January. The price is set at $99.99 on the official Sony Ericsson eShop but we hear this just might end up coming to Rogers too.
This is an Android-based Bluetooth remote control that you can use as a wrist watch or clip it anywhere you feel the need too. LiveView is compatible with any Android that runs OS 2.0 or higher and gives you the ability to play music from your device, shows incoming calls/texts, read Twitter/Facebook updates and RSS feeds, view messages, get calendar reminders and displays the time and date. Specs have it coming with a 1.3-inch OLED touchscreen display (resolution of 128×128), weighs only 15 grams and because it operated via Bluetooth is has an operating range of 10 meters.
It currently says this is “Out of stock” but most likely it’ll become available when the Xperia arc and Play launch on the 28th.
