Sony Ericsson LiveView Android add-on unveiled

Sony Ericsson’s LiveView display accessory is landing in the UK November 19th, Play.com has confirmed.

The add-on hooks up to your Android handset via Bluetooth and shows all kinds of communiqués, including emails, texts and call info, on its 1.3-inch span screen.

You’ll also be able to use to control music and movie playback remotely using two hardkeys and four softkeys, with track titles shown on the display, too

Alas, if you want to get onboard with the LiveView you’ll need a phone running Android 2.0 or above. Natch, that’s somewhat ironic given that UK owners of Sony Ericsson’s X10 are currently stuck on the 1.6 version, AKA Donut, of Google’s software.

Still, with SE starting to roll out Éclair across Europe on Sunday hopefully that won’t be the case for too much longer.

No such luck for X8 users, however. On Monday, Sony Ericsson stated only that 2.1 “should be released” for the budget Android phone “later this year”.
