Sony Ericsson LiveView– Update

We have brought you a few posts on the Sony Ericsson LiveView and what it can do as well as a few reviews which ultimately resulted in a mixed opinions. Good, but lacking apps and potential software issues.

The LiveView has been a rather popular product for us, exceeding our expectations. 

This post comes on the back a post over at the Sony Ericsson Blog by Rickard Slogberg who has obviously been reading some of the reviews of the LiveView and wanted to clear up a few things.

 

As I’ve read some reviews of LiveView I’ve noticed that some users are reporting issues with e.g. the connection between the device and the phone. Especially when using phones from our competitors. This is very unfortunate and has been escalated to our developers. They have been working hard on identifying the issues and have solutions coming.

In some reviews I have also read comments about the LiveView device not being upgradable. I just want to confirm that that is not the case. There will be a software update coming for the device itself. The work is ongoing and the plan is to make this updated software available as an update through SE Update Service in January.

In addition there are now a few more applications starting to become available for the LiveView which may begin to make the LiveView a more viable option.
