Latest Sony Ericsson XPERIA phones will be Facebook phones

Sony Ericsson just announced they plan to bump up the Facebook integration on their XPERIA phones to a whole new level. Beyond the obvious single sign-on and contacts and calendar sync, Facebook will now show its face at numerous places throughout the Xperia user interface.

Here's the new stuff we caught so far:

  • There's a Like button in the music player, so you can share the tracks you like.
  • The photos shared by your friends on Facebook now have a dedicated tab in the Timescape UI.
  • Facebook notifications now appear alongside your mised calls and text messages on your lockscreen.
  • The Android image gallery now integrates your photo albums from Facebook besides the Picasa web albums.
  • A new Media discovery widget will automatically show you the videos and music shared by your friends.
  • Besides getting synced with Facebook, contacts now have new tabs full of their likes, interests, wall activity, and photos and videos.

The new Facebook integration will come standard issue on the new Xperia pro and pro mini, but it will be implemented on the entire 2011 Xperia lineup via an update sooner or later (Q2 2011 is promised).
