The 1.3-inch Sony Ericsson LiveView display – that hooks up via Bluetooth to your Android smartphone and can show SMS, email, call and other information – has found itself a release date. UK retailer Play is listing the LiveView for £49.99 ($80) with a November 19 release, just as we heard would be the case back in October.
The display is a color OLED panel, with two hardkeys and four softkeys for control and navigation. It comes with both a clip – for your lapel – or a wristband, and allows RSS and SMS display, control over media playback (including showing which track is playing) and Facebook and Twitter updates.
You’ll need an Android 2.0 phone or above to use the LiveView, since there’s the companion Sony Ericsson LiveWare Manager and LiveView app that need to be installed as well. They’re already in the Android Market.
