The update will feature camera enhancements for the Xperia smartphones, which uses 3D sweep panorama technology. This is found in Sony’s line of cameras that allow images to be captured and then viewed in 3D by connecting the phone to a 3D TV using the HDMI output. Social networking is a major part of this Android 2.3.4 upgrade for Sony Ericsson Xperia, which features Google Talk with video chat for smartphones with front-facing cameras. These smartphones will get deeper Facebook integration enabling users to like, share and discover on Facebook in a faster, easier and more intuitive way. The new functionality aims to make entertainment more social by giving users the ability to share and discover apps and games with friends through Facebook.

With the latest upgrade, consumers would be able to turn their smartphone into a semi-mobile PC by connecting USB peripherals such as a mouse, keyboard or game controller to a Sony Ericsson LiveDock multimedia station. For more information on the update, hit the link here.
