Sony Ericsson added WebGL support for Xperia phones in the latest firmware update. What is WebGL you may ask? Well it basically allows you to generate interactive 3D graphics inside the Android web browser without plugins. Sony Ericsson says that they are the first manufacturer to add WebGL support. Developers will be able to start using the technology to produce future web-based apps.
To see some interactive demos for yourself, Sony Ericsson has provided three to test on your 2011 Xperia device (as long as you are running the 4.0.2.A.0.42 firmware update and beyond). You can choose between demos of the Sony Ericsson logo, Walt Disney and two Ninjas. Be prepared to wait though, they do take a bit of time to load. If you don’t have the latest update, then we’ve attached a short video demo of this 3D technology in action after the cut.
