Users of Sony Ericsson phones need not download the ShowNearby app from Market, as it is preembedded for their convenience! By the way, Sony Ericsson had an event which launched the Xperia Arc, Xperia Neo and Xperia Play on March 24 (see more here). Congratulations!

For Sony Ericsson users, there are exciting features such as the bus timing widget, weather "now"cast and integration into the Timescape plugin.
Bus Timing Widgetry
Choose your ShowNearby Bus Timings widget now! You may customise it by naming the bus stop you are at or normally frequent. You may also use this widget to retrieve your "favourite" bus stop (under "My Favourites") that was previously stored in your ShowNearby app.
Add your ShowNearby widget and voila! It will be on your phone's home screen. =)
Bright skies ahead
Our Sony Ericsson users will be very pleased to know that weather information is now location-specific and updated real-time! If you are headed to Sentosa within the next hour, you can access a place in Sentosa, view its place details page and see the weather information!
Great to have this app, if we say so ourselves, when you are planning to have a beach outing, picnic or dine alfresco. =D
To check the weather, simply select a nearby place and check out its place details page! If you are at Junction 8 Shopping Mall for instance, simply select the place and see the top right hand corner of the screen of the place details page.
Tap on the weather icon on the left of the "Favourite" star icon to learn more about the weather condition!
Available on Timescape
ShowNearby is the first app from the Asia Pacific to be integrated in Timescape, a system on Sony Ericsson that aggregates the activities of the user. With ShowNearby-on-Timescape, you can see deals and promotions near you! Feel free to download it here.
These features are now available on all Sony Ericsson phones!
Feel free to learn more about the launch and the phones here. Thanks "bluetooth" of OCWorkbench for sharing ShowNearby!
