Sony-Ericsson Xperia Facebook Smartphones : Sony Ericsson announced that its new portfolio of Xperia Smartphones will offer people an exciting, new social experience. As people are becoming increasingly reliant on their Smartphones for instant communication, Facebook inside Xperia Smartphones integrates social connections throughout the phone. By making Facebook immediately accessible from the most used areas of the Smartphone such as the picture gallery, music player, phonebook and calendar, Sony Ericsson is enabling people to share and comment more easily than ever before through the new range of Xperia Facebook Smartphones.|
Among the notable new features, Sony-Ericsson Xperia Facebook Smartphones will offer is an innovative type of social music experience. If you find a great new track or are listening to your favourite tune, you can ‘like’ it directly from the media player and then the Wall on your Facebook profile will be updated automatically without you ever having to open the Facebook application. You will also have the ability to keep track of the music and videos your friends have liked, recommended and have been commenting on through services such as YouTube and Spotify.
