Sony Ericsson is to answer everyone who wants a second, separate mini display for their mobile phone.

As if whipping out your handset wasn't easy enough, SE's LiveView allows you to leave that oh-so-large 3.5in touchscreen in your pocket or bag while you glance instead at LiveView's 1.3in, 128 x 128 OLED panel.

LiveView talks to the handset over Bluetooth, taking note of incoming messages, social network postings, calls and so forth, and popping up appropriate notifications and counts of items you haven't yet dealt with.

SE said LiveView will be compatible with its Xperia X10, X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro and "most other brands on Android 2.0 and above". Other brands? The X10 line isn't itself at Android 2 yet...

The LiveView's battery is good for four days' usage on one charge, SE claimed. It has a micro USB port for charging

The compact touchscreen gadget comes with a wristband and a clip. Cynics will undoubtedly think SE began working on this when early iPod Nano components became known, but we don't believe that for a minute.

LiveView goes on sale in Q4. ®
