so now hus d first again to invent such as remote control via wristwatch juz for ur android phone?? ,,,i cant here you !!!!!!!! guys?? yuppp!!! its S.E. again to invent such a cool gadget.. assistant through you phone
this means that we have to turn on the bluetooth all the time... I bet it will drain the phones battery real quick.. My HTC Legend only lasts for 4-6 hrs with the internet on, and with the bluetooth on, well not a good idea for me, although I really like the liveview design
Anonymous, 28 Sep 2010this phone will flop. it may look cool but in real world only few people will buy this phone. ... moreREAD THE REVIEW... ITS NOT A PHONE! its an affordable accessory to thats a bit gadgety and serves purpose!
zamroni, 29 Sep 2010Just like Xperia Pureness, another useless product from dumb SE people. Running Bluetooth when... moreWell you either don't understand the point of this device or your not the target market for it.
I have the MBW-150 watch connnected up to HTC Desire and it is fantastic. It's invaluable for meetings where it's quite distracting to other people if your checking your phone all the time.
I don't know about this new device, but my watch vibrates everytime I recieve a notification or during a call. The OLED display on my watch shows the caller ID or the start of the message/email. When this happens I can just have a quick glance at my watch and decide if I need to excuse myself to take a call or reply to a sms/email.
This new device seems to do a lot more (facebook access etc) but I do like my MBW-150, so I probably won't change unless it breaks.
Just like Xperia Pureness, another useless product from dumb SE people. Running Bluetooth when you are in the wild will drain useful battery power. When you are in the city, it is better read the SMS from the phone screen directly.
Android Phone Declines for Superb Activation of Intra aceess to web.. Losser Boy.. Take it out
wow such a cool device, but ill think i wait till HTC makes one witha price tag thats 2000 dollars less :)
i can see ppl thing this talkin abt a phone..... cuz who ever wrote tht article opened up with watch phones.... which should even be mentioned at all...
Hey. A word on the pricing. Rikard commented on the post on the SE product blog stating that the price will be around 60 euros. So that's for any one that is interested. Regards,
This is all the info you may want to know regarding this product:
The Sony Ericsson LiveView is a clip-on remote control for smartphones running Android 2.0 and higher. It’ll arrive in “select markets” during the fourth quarter.
Sony Ericsson wants to streamline your mobile experience, the phone maker explained in a Sept. 28 announcement that introduced LiveView—a tiny remote control for smartphones running Google’s Android operating system.
The LiveView remote control, which measures 3.5 by 3.5 by 1.1 centimeters and features a 1.3-inch color OLED display, can be clipped to a wristwatch, say, or a cuff. It then connects to a phone through Bluetooth, offering a mirrored experience. With LiveView, a user with his or her phone tucked away in a handbag or back pocket can control the phone’s MP3 player, see who’s calling, mute the ringer on incoming calls and receive Facebook and Twitter updates, instant messages and RSS feeds. It can also display calendar events—reminding users of events—as well as other phone applications.
A LiveView Manager, according to Sony Ericsson, will soon be available in the Android Market to help users find LiveView-enabled applications. Additionally, the manager will be available preinstalled on some devices or come in bundles, called Experience Packs. One such Pack, the Sony Ericsson Fitness Pack, will be geared toward exercisers and include a SportyPal Pro application and a carrying case for the phone.
The first Packs, like the LiveView remote, will arrive in select markets during the fourth quarter of 2010.
“It is our ambition to be the communication entertainment brand and this includes being the most open mobile phone brand on the market,” Mikael Henriksson, head of creation and offering planning in Sony Ericsson’s Extras group, said in a statement. “We believe in openness and offering consumers a wide range of applications to choose from.”
LiveView is compatible with a Make It Mine open platform for developers, and Henriksson adds that LiveView is the first Sony Ericsson accessory to be compatible with the Android platform, “which gives developers an opportunity to be creative and develop the next must-have innovative application.”
LiveView will initially be compatible with the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, X10 mini and X10 mini pro smartphones, as well as the Samsung Galaxy S and the HTC Desire. It comes with a clip and wristband, as well as a micro USB charger.
Pricing, as well as battery life details, have not yet been released. A visit to the LiveView site offers little hope for a fourth-quarter U.S. debut
"It's a curious (though most likely random) coincidence - the Sony Ericsson LiveView coming out so soon after some 'entrepreneurs' created the Apple iPod nano wrist strap."
This is SE we're talking about. There is no way they can throw together something like this in a month.
HTC** any smartphone, 28 Sep 2010Wht does it mean w android phone?? are Android phones the same as smartphones?? per say an HTC... moreif you dont know, you shouldn't even be thinking of owning a smartphone
The LiveView is compatible with Android 2.0+ devices. On the second picture is Xperia X10 with Android 1.6! :)
Here's an idea - wouldn't this be more marketable as an accessory that is already bundled with a compatible phone (2.0+). I think that would be a genuinely interesting USP that would raise the value of the packaged handset, especially given the distinct lack of useful or innovative bundled accessories these days. That would certainly set SE apart from other manufacturers in this respect at least.
How I pray for the day when spare batteries/charging docks/bluetooth headsets/clip-on 'watches' become more common with phones that don't cost £1000+ Unpacking would be even more fun!
