Sony trials My Xperia service

Taking a leaf out of the Apple handbook is Sony's My Xperia service, which is now available in beta form.

Like the Apple service, this is a way of keeping track of your pride and joy, should your Xperia get lost or stolen. It's fairly simple to use too. Just link your phone up to MyXperia.com and if it is lost or stolen, you can do your best to retrieve it.

You can either locate your smartphone on a map using the GPS or sound an alert to get someone’s attention, which can also override the silent mode and wake the display. Either of which should help you locate it if lost.

If something more sinister has happened, you can remotely oak the phone to keep any information private or erase both internal and external SD card info / data if you really are worried.

Sony is said to be planning a 'phased launch' for My Xperia, kicking off with the Xperia Acro S in Nordic countries, and moving to other Android 4.0-based 2012 Xperia phones in the future. When the service becomes eligible for you, an update will be sent to your phone.

Nice little addition from Sony, especially if you are the forgetful type!
