Sony Ericsson Vscreens shares from Android to all
Sony Ericsson on Friday brought out a beta app that lets an Android device share its media on most bigger screens. Vscreens requires an Android app (Market) but can form a bond to share media with any device on the local Wi-Fi network by scanning a QR code on the screen. The link works on any modern browser and will show photos and videos on the target browser, even on iOS devices or the PS3.
The approach is a way to skip the trouble of requiring both devices on a universal sharing protocol, like DLNA, or else making a physical connection.
Running the app demands at least Android 2.1, but it isn't locked to Sony Ericsson phones.
