Now that's a great service which somehow slipped under my radar! We have heard a lot about DLNA and HDMI which allows to share on a smartphone stored music, photos and videos with large screen TVs, Google TV or PCs. However, this either requires cable connections or service compatibilities. Sony Ericsson's goes a different way by allowing users to share pictures and even videos on a larger screen without the hassle of cable connections and pairing. It's a simple combination of a web service and an Android app (which works on any Android 2.1 or better phone) which allows to share photos via a simple Internet connection or videos through the same home network. does not require cables, Bluetooth pairing or entry of WiFi network passwords. It does not require that your mobile device and browser are on the same network. It does not require you to install and configure things such as DLNA, SMB servers or Windows file sharing but it's simple media sharing without limits.

After the Android app was installed, you have to open in a browser on your larger screen. Here, all you have to do is scanning the 3D barcode with the vscreens Android app and the service connects the phone with the large screen web browser. Now you can simply select which photo (or video) should be shown on the large screen.
Simple photo sharing works fine over a 3G connection of the phone, video sharing requires to be on the same WiFi network with the large screen device.

The Sony Ericsson app is available free of charge from the Android Market and only requires an Android 2.1 device or higher!
