Sony today announced the launch of a pilot program called my Xperia. The pilot is testing a new service from Sony that can be used by smartphones owners to find or secure lost/stolen devices. The service requires owners of Sony's Xperia smartphones to download a small application and sign in with their Google ID. Once set up, my Xperia can be used to locate a smartphone on a map, sound an alert, flash contact details on the screen, lock the phone, or erase the data on both the internal storage and external SD card. The trial is launching in Nordic countries on the Acro S first, and will be made available to other Android 4.0 devices over time. Sony said it plans to roll the service out to all Xperia users during the second quarter.
