Sony Ericsson Japan has released a fancy new home launcher called AmbientTime Home. AmbientTime Home offers live wallpaper on your Xperia X10, 5 homescreens and a very fancy new lock screen. This follows an Android clock app called AmbientTime Lite that SE Japan launched this time last year.
It’s really quite beautiful to play with but whilst it’s a nice diversion, there are a few sticking points that mean it’s difficult to recommend over more mature launchers such as ADW (at least in this v1.0.0 release).
Problems include lag on the new lockscreen as well as the fact that the default lockscreen appears when receiving a call. There is a distinct lack of customisation and wallpapers cannot be changed. We’ve also noticed some widgets also have bits cut off when using AmbientTime Home. However, it’s at least worth a download just to pass some time whilst waiting for the Android 2.1 update.

Thanks Pappy and Patrick!
