Sony Ericsson supports developers, teams up with CyanogenMod

Earlier this week we briefly mentioned the highly popular CyanogenMod 7 would be coming to a wide array of Sony Ericsson smartphones thanks to a group effort by the devs of Cyanogen and FreeXperia, today we have now learned we have one more to thank for the continued support -- Sony Ericsson. They've teamed with CM and FreeXperia and we have the details below.

CyanogenMod and FreeXperia team up to offer CM7 on 10 Sony Ericsson devices

Back in August we first heard a few minor details that the members of CyanogenMod were planning to support more device, especially a wide array of Sony Ericsson smartphones. Yesterday Cyanogen himself (Steve Kondik) confirmed support for 10 new SE phones over on Google+. With a joint effort by the CM team and the group known as FreeXperia we can expect to see CM7 and future releases support many Sony Ericsson and Xperia play devices moving forward.

Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman teardown photos posted at FCC

Over the past year or so, Sony Ericsson has been bringing their A-game to the Android smartphone and oddities market, and with the combination of the forever-famous Walkman brand name, they've got a good chance of continuing to increase business built on the Google mobile OS platform. What's up today is an FCC listing of the Sony Ericsson media player known as Live with Walkman, a long name for an interestingly quite possibly awesome future mobile device running Android. Look like the originally announced bright white to you?

Sony Ericsson Nozomi tipped with 1.5GHz dual-core and 342 PPI display

It should go without saying that 342 PPI on a smartphone display is big, it's bad, it's amazing. One of the things that makes the iPhone such a blockbuster device (amongst many things, I'm sure) is the fact that it (the iPhone 4, that is) has a 326 PPI on its display. That's THICK and it makes brightness and sharpness tip and top. What we're to understand today is that Sony Ericsson will be punching that PPI (pixels per inch) directly in the nose with a device currently code-named Nozomi. Will this dual-core 1.5GHz device bring the beatdown, or will it come out much, much too late?

This is a new phone that will be called the Smart Bar that should hit the streets of Japan starting September 22nd. Who wants one? I know I do.

Android Update Alliance Put Under Microscope, Gingerbread Found Missing

Remember back at Google I/O when the folks at Google announced an alliance between manufacturers that would all but guarantee you'd have updates sent to your Android devices up to and including 18 months after its inception date? Have you heard anything about that group since? Not just a whole heck of a lot, right? Well check it out, the folks at AndroidAndMe have done a study taking into account every released device at this very moment and have found which devices have the most current OS (and we're talking only about smartphones here, not tablets), that OS being Android 2.3 Gingerbread right this moment.
