Sony Ericsson has just launched the latest panels for its multimedia convergence phone, the Xperia X1, teaming up with the popular social networking site Facebook and Microsoft Windows Live. These web-centric panels come in addition to the existing connectivity panel from Dashwire, a site which allows you to sync your phone content to the web and share it to a range of popular social networking sites.
The new Facebook application built for Sony Ericsson uses the unique interface of the Xperia X1 to deliver an intuitive version of the site, putting images of your friends onto your phone’s desktop (standby screen) and showing their latest status updates as you touch their images. Touch through to access more Facebook features.
New functions available through the Xperia X1 Facebook panel include:
– An entirely new visual representation of friends’ statuses
– Simple and fast upload of photos to Facebook
– Easy access to Facebook friends list and phone numbers, with click to call capabilities.
As you touch to view different information, icons and links change to give you one touch access to the information you are likely to use – for example, touch the photo icon from your profile page to see your photos, from a friend’s profile page touch the photo icon to see their photos.
