Sony Ericsson confirm LiveView update in Jan 2011: Bluetooth fixes & more

Dec 22, 2010

It's fair to say our lasting impressions of the Sony Ericsson LiveView were less than glowing, with Bluetooth connection issues and patchy functionality leaving us underwhelmed by the wireless Android sub-display. The good news is that Sony Ericsson has confirmed that the LiveView's firmware is indeed upgradable, with the first update due for release in January 2011.

According to the company's official blog, among the high-priority fixes are Bluetooth performance, particularly when using the LiveView with non-Sony Ericsson devices. The other changes haven't been confirmed, but we're hoping they include things like the LiveView being able to maintain its own date/time record rather than relying solely on the Android device it's paired with.
