Sony Ericsson adds bespoke Android Market to handsets

Timescape and LiveView apps now more easily accessible for Sony Ericsson handset owners.

Sony Ericsson has launched its own applications channel on the Android Market Homepage, showcasing plug-ins for its Timescape UI and LiveView accessory.

The Sony Ericsson channel appears in place of the My Apps link on the Android Market homepage alongside the channels for apps and games. My Apps is now relegated to a link in the Android menu.

Sony Ericsson is the first manufacturer to change the Android Market to suit its own purposes, but it's a good way to show-off the bespoke Timescale apps that may get lost in the shuffle in the regular Market.

Among the apps listed in the Sony Ericsson channel are Foursquare Timescape and LinkedIn Timescape, as well as a camera plug-in for the neat little LiveView wrist accessory.

Sony Ericsson has said this change won't occur on all of its handsets and that the Android Market revamp will be largely dependent on your mobile operator.
