Back in September Sony Ericsson announced its new gadget for Android devices - LiveView. Itís a Bluetooth wristwatch that can remote control your phone. The LiveView is now getting an update that brings improved stability, compatibility with other Android handhelds and the number of available plug-ins raises to a total of 30.

With the number of compatible apps growing in the Android Market, LiveView has the potential to become a must-have accessory.

Some connection issues have reportedly been solved with the new update, although the Sony Ericsson official blog actually says ďmost identified reasons for random disconnectsĒ, so thatís not exactly all, is it?

The crashes that users have reported have also been resolved, so hereís where active user feedback is paying off. Also automatic reconnect has been implemented, which means that should you leave the device and disconnect, upon coming in its range it will automatically connect you again.

Also compatibility with competitorís phones has been vastly improved. That means that you donít have to be limited to using only Sony Ericssonís Android portfolio and can use LiveView with almost any Android device out there that has version 2.0 or higher. Though there are still some stability and reconnection issues with certain phones running Android 2.2 Froyo, the Sony Ericsson support page claims a simple reboot is all thatís needed to fix those.

The update itself is already available for download, so go get it if you have a LiveView watch.
