Sony Ericsson has launched two new applications, or “panels” for its multimedia convergence phone, the Xperia X1, in connection with Facebook and Microsoft Windows Live.

New functions available through the Facebook panel include an new way of showing the status of your friends, simple upload of photos and easy access to friends list and phone numbers, with click-to-call capabilities.

As you view different information, icons and links change to give you one touch access to the information you are likely to use.

The Windows Live panel uses existing Windows Live ID to sync contacts held in the X1’s phonebook, and the panel provides easy access to the Microsoft messenger interface, including Hotmail and Live Messenger.

The panel will also give users access to the Windows Live Search function, which is tailored to mobile phones and can be voice activated and controlled. Other Windows Live services will be incorporated into the panel throughout the year. Panels can also be downloaded from the Sony Ericsson Fun & Downloads website – just select “panels”.

    The Xperia X1 is designed to let you enjoy the convergence of communication and entertainment so you can enjoy your favourite entertainment and work efficiently on the move

    The XPERIA X1 is a legend of a phone.

    I got mine last week and now i dont know how i lived without it. The slide out QWERTY keyboard makes txting and emailing a breeze but it also comes in handy when jotting things down for work etc.

    Definately a 10 out of 10 from Sony Ericsson
