Last Gadget Standing Nominee: Sony Ericsson LiveView micro display
Price: About $85
Everyone likes Android phones with humongous screens, right? Sony Ericsson is betting that some folks who own those phones would like to keep them in their pocket or purse and control them with the LiveView, a tiny squarish display that can communicate with several of the company’s Xperia handsets via Bluetooth. It can display information such as incoming calls, Facebook and Twitter updates, and “now playing” details on music, and you can wear it on a clip, fasten it to your keychain, or even strap it on like a wristwatch.
The LiveView automatically scans your Xperia phone for compatible applications, and will be available in “selected markets” by the end of this year.
