Along with the phones, Sony Ericsson also announced some SmartExtras (accessories) for their new phones. Justin took a look at the LiveSound earphones. LiveSound™ headphones allow consumers to remotely access applications from the phone through LiveKey™ control, including updates from run/jog tracking applications like distance and speed.
Also Justin got a chance to look at the LiveDock accessory. It takes in a standard USB connector and allows a movable micro-USB connection to be compatible with phones of various dimensions. Also it allows you to setup and auto-launch a specific Android application when the LiveDock is connected to the phone.
The Sony Ericsson SmartExtras will be available globally in selected markets from Q3 2011. More on the Sony Ericsson press website.Posted by NTT | 1 Comment

What a way to start a Monday morning!
Last week, Justin and I went up to Fusionopolis to meet Chris Whitney, the CTO OF HP Singapore and the managing director of HP Labs Singapore, as we chatted with him all about his venture into technological innovations. Chris spoke to us about his childhood foray into technology right up to the point where he became a founding director of HP Labs in Singapore that focusses on cloud computing, mobile and immersive experiences among many others.
What struck me the most was how Chris was still very focussed on the human interaction element of every day life and using technology as an enabler and tool! Let’s hear from him as we chatted on that monday morning 🙂Posted by sayanee | 1 Comment
