Video: BlueputDroid - Android Phone as a PS3 Bluetooth Keyboard


163w ago - Today berserker_devel at the XDA Developers site has shared some videos (below) on BlueputDroid, which is an application that allows Android phones to control a PS3 acting as a PS3 Bluetooth keyboard remote control.

To quote from GamesRadar.com (linked above): "The independent developer has tested it out on the Nexus One, HTC Wildfire, and LG Optimus One - all with rooted firmwares. He was not able to get it working on the Optimus One.

BlueputDroid is the first app to allow a smartphone to pair up with the PS3 as an input device. There have been other Bluetooth apps for Android that more flexibility in syncing the phone to a computer, but this is the first working app for PS3 connectivity."

From the video's caption: "This is a work in progress of my last Android application "BlueputDroid". With this app you will be able to use your device as a bluetooth keyboard for your PS3.

Nexus One Tested on a rooted Nexus One running a "clean" Cyanogen 6.1.1 (root is required to make it work). A beta version will be released soon on the Android Market, stay tuned!"

you love apple, did you know that iphone/pad's are bottlenecked while tethering even when jailbroken? + and that you can tether without jailbreak on most new ANDROIDS! i can do that plus more with NO APPLE, soo android is better (for some reason :s)
Who the hell said I love apple. Just because I'm pointing out this isn't the first app to allow this on a smart phone doesn't mean I think the iPhone's better than an android phone.

The best of both worlds is an iPhone with idroid installed as dual boot, but this is very buggy at the time and doesn't allow the marketplace to legally be installed, and its for older generations of iOS devices at the time being.

But seriously, don't assume that just because someone speaks out and says the iPhone did it first means they love apple. Apple is a giant douche that needs to recognize that once a phone is in the hands of the consumer, it's their phone and their allowed to do with it whatever they please. The need to encourage this aspect like android has in order to better themselves.

By trying to block this with every firmware update they continue to waste resources that they could be using to actually add a few features to their own phone that people actually want, like a better notification system (preferably like androids). Instead people are forced to void their warranty to gain access to these modifications, which in my opinion, who the hell cares, wipe, restore, return, and they have no clue if it was jailbroken or not.

Apple = You can't do that because we didn't get money from it.
Android = Everyone loves modifications so do what you want, pay us though (sometimes).
