Sony Ericsson reveals it has made the 2011 Xperia line the first Androids with WebGL support
For reason unbeknownst Sony Ericsson didn't boast a very interesting feature that came with the Android 2.3.4 update to its 2011 Xperia lineup not long ago. We knew that it brought WiFi DLNA, 16x digital zoom while filming, screen capture and USB-on-the-go from the LiveDock  accessory, but nothing about it including WebGL support.

Yet Sony Ericsson chose yesterday to enlighten us on the matter, saying that this year's Xperias are the first smartphones to support this fashionable Java-based web graphics standard that is used to create 3D imagery without resorting to plug-ins and relying on the GPU for acceleration, which takes pressure off the processor.

Yet WebGL is still in its infancy and not as widely supported or efficient, but with software like the web version of Angry Birds built with it, the standard might have a future. Watch a demo of the tech below, and enjoy the support if you own a Sony Ericsson Xperia arc, arc S, neo, neo V, mini, mini pro, ray, pro, active or Play.
