Sony Ericsson LiveView AppIn a sign that Sony Ericsson’s LiveView Bluetooth display is soon to be released, the application has hit the Android Market. The app itself is a simple affair that basically manages the connection of the display with your Android phone as well as choosing what information you want displayed.

We’ve attached a few pictures of the app after the jump. They show that you can customise exactly which tiles you want displayed on the LiveView device. This includes choosing from text messages, incoming calls, missed calls, facebook, twitter, RSS and calendar notifications. The display is due to be released in the next fortnight with Play.com listing it for £49.99 for release on 19th November.

Can I use MW600 + LIVEVIEW? Both bluetooth device’s connected to same phone?
Is it possible? To answer calls from MW600 or play music on MW600 and change tracks/pause using LiveView??

@Yas
Yes it is possible. I have used MW600 and MBW-150 and both worked pretty well.

I am a watch collector, so I’ll be getting myself a LiveView, but the question here, what is the expected battery life cycle on this thing??

Short battery span will certainly be a deal killer, as it will render this device impractical and inconvenient… think about having to recharge your watch daily…

Not bad….but 50pounds?

@Bayhas Kana

Battery life should be around 4 days according to SE

When will it arrive here in the States??!! This is the perfect thing to match up with a non bluetooth and bluetooth headset for the phone for my Mountain Bike Rides. I just wonder X10 are you going to do a full review of how long it lasts and what functions it drains battery the most and if it would be better at that point to upgrade to a Aftermarket battery(Ex: Cameron Sino,Mugen, Etc.)Waiting for this and to get the Mw-600 for the holidays :).

Oscar: Would be mega-cool if you could have charged your phone from a dynamo on the bike – never a battery issue when you are riding! 🙂

It is perfect for adding gps Android compass

@ John – That sounds awesome never thought about it that way but then again it would make the bike heavier,unless the bike was a ultra light MTB then it would be more do-able. Carbon fiber here I come! LOL 🙂
@ Ankaho- Exactly. If it ever came here to the States I’d using Endomondo like crazy with it!!

@ X10 please do a follow up on LiveView and Mugen3600mah combination!!
