Sony Ericsson LiveView is your phone's nano-like display

Sony Ericsson announced the new LiveView gadget. It’s about the size of a watch face and it comes with a wrist strap. Are you tired of taking your phone out of your pocket just so that you can check up on your Twitter stream or skip to the next music track?Then it is what you need badly.
Basically, the Sony Ericsson LiveView is a Bluetooth external cell phone screen that pushes most of the functionality from your phone onto its 1.3-inch OLED display. You can read RSS, check Facebook, and do whatever else without ever taking your phone out of your pocket. If you’re not the wrist watch type, it can also be clipped onto your clothing like the new iPod nano (cool isn't it?).

For controls, it has a touch-sensitive bezel and physical buttons on the corners. The LiveView should be compatible with smartphones running Android 2.0+, so long as the app you’re using is designed for this interface. You’ll need the Sony Ericsson LiveWare Manager app from Android Market too. Look for it in Q4.
