Following on from last week’s video demo’s of some of the new found functionality in the Android 2.1 Xperia X10 update, Rikard Skogberg from the SE Product Blog has released another video highlighting the changes made in Timescape and the (social) phonebook.
Timescape, on the face of it, looks largely unchanged, however there are some subtle differences. This includes the ability to post updates directly to the app as well as automatically scrolling text when clicking a tile. The idea behind this is that you don’t have to go into another app to post updates/read long messages.
The social phonebook shows that on clicking a contact you can choose from a number of different functions including calling, Google talk and facebook updates amongst others. We’ll also be able to call directly, unlike the current convoluted method. The call screen has also changed, adding icons for speaker, mute, dial pad and contacts. You can see the video in 720p below that was shot on another Android 2.1-updated Xperia X10.
