Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 connected to and controlling Sony Playstation 3Posted by Bic on Apr 30, 2009 in News, Sony Ericsson Phones, Sony Gaming, Xperia | 1 comment
Wow, this is really something. An application has been released for Windows Mobile phones, including the Xperia X1 from Sony Ericsson. The appplication, MobileRemote, allows you to connect your Windows Mobile phone via bluetooth to another bluetooth enabled device. In the video below, we see Youtube user bear807 connect his Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 to the PS3 using MobileRemote. The app will allow you to control about 85% of the functions on the PS3. The keyboard chat was tested out on Little Big Planet and worked fine. Browsing the internet also worked well for using the Xperia as a mouse and keyboard.
Bear807 also tested streaming music from his laptop to the PS3. It was noted that skipping to the next song or previous song didn’t work. MobileRemote can be downloaded from here for $8.99.
