If you’re the owner of a Sony Ericsson Android device, you may see something a little different in the Android Market today. As it was before, you would have seen 3 sections called Apps, games and My Apps. After Wednesday however, Sony Ericsson users will now see ‘My Apps’ replaced with ‘Sony Ericsson’. As many other companies have created their own duplicated Android Markets and stores, Sony Ericsson has created its own ‘channel’ within the original Android Market, where SE owners will find Xperia related apps tailored for use on SE Xperia devices.
As this channel has replaced the ‘My Apps’ section, you’ll need to go into your Android menu to get to your installed apps section, or you could always use one of the free ‘uninstaller’ apps available from the market as well. I say, leave it the way it is, or rather than fill the actual Android Market with more crap tailored channels, make an app for it giving users the option of using your crap app, or using the default, everybody has it, everybody can use it Android market. This feature by the way is currently carrier specific at the moment, but may work its way across all carriers soon enough.
Ah Sony, why must humans continually re-invent the wheel….it’s a wheel….it works! What do you think Xperia owners, do you mind this new feature?
