Sony Ericsson has announced a really cool product called LiveView that hooks a second small 128×128 screen up to your Android phone to display Email, RSS feeds, and more. It’s compatible with the Android 2.0, and supports plugins to expand it’s features beyond the already impressive list : Facebook is included, it controls the MP3 player, even works with awesome running  app. This app lets you monitor your heart rate, speed, distance as well as control music while the phone is in your pocket. It’ll even hook into a watch-band, similar to how the new iPod Nano is being shown. The neat device is shipping soon, take a peek at Sony Ericsson’s site.

    I wonder (and am hopeful) if it can/will run simultaneously with a stereo bluetooth headset for calls and music.

    the link to the SE page needs a cleanup.

    As for it being usable alongside a stereo headset, i would suspect it will. This as i already can use a SE featurephone as both net connection for a PDA and a music player streaming to a bluetooth stereo headset at the same time.

    @John – The back has clip on it, and it does control the MP3 player – I think it would work great as a remote in the car.

    @GodMode – I think it would work, but I don’t see anything on Sony Ericsson’s page that says explicitly it would.

    Hard to believe that at $80 retail, this is capable of sooo much more than the new nano. Hope this pushes apple to develop a new sort of iphone-companion, or at least open up their iOS platform a bit more so developers and 3rd-party can make us cooler toys :)

    If only Sony’s actual Android phones RAN Android 2.0 or higher. They’ve been promising this for months…

    @Cinie, not likely as it needs app on the phone for much of its functionality and i have not read that SE have made said app available via the Apple app store.
