Sony Ericsson has launched a 'micro display' for Android phones, which can be worn around the wrist like a watch.

LiveView lets use wirelessly pair up to a compatible handset and then read text messages, see incoming calls and keep up to date with social network alerts. It can also control music and calendar functions.

SE wants third parties to ake their apps work with the concept. And to find LiveView enabled applications, it has developed the LiveWare Manager app, which scans Android Market and presents compatible apps to the user.

Mikael Henriksson, head of creation and offering planning at Sony Ericsson Extras, said: "LiveView is the first Sony Ericsson accessory to be compatible with the open Android platform which gives developers an opportunity to be creative and develop the next must-have innovative application."

LiveView will be available in stores from Q4, 2010.
