Sony Ericsson's Android UI called Nexus, coming to more devices

When the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 was unveiled, one of the things that stood out for me was the new UI that SE had created running on top of Android, much like HTC's SenseUI system. The company has now christened the new system the Nexus UX platform and has suggested plans to bring it to other devices, including the possibility of introducing it into Symbian and Windows Mobile phones.

A WebSDK has been released online allowing developers to create applications specifically for the Nexus UX platform, which SE hopes will differentiate the handsets from competitors. Examples of apps on Nexus UX are the inbuilt Timescape and Mediascape interfaces demonstrated at the X10 unveiling. SE aims to have a couple of hundred apps and plug-ins available when the XPERIA X10 launches early next year  and has hinted at adding a "PS3" Remote Play app allowing users to access media on their PS3s directly through the phone via the internet. 

What do you think of the Nexus UX platform? How does it compare to HTC's SenseUI and the Motorola Droid's more "plain" Android interface?
