Sony Ericsson releases Bluetooth remote control tool
Some Sony Ericsson mobile phones were capable of remotely control PowerPoint and Windows Media Player, but a new tool extends this feature to any application on Windows or Mac OS X.

Users of K700, S700/S710, V800, Z800, K750, and K600 can utilise the Sony Ericsson Bluetooth Remote Control tool to control media players, PowerPoint presentations or any Windows or Mac application.

In order to use the Bluetooth Remote Control functionality, the Bluetooth stack on PC or Mac OS X must support the HID profile.

Currently the latest version of Widcomm, Bluesoleil and the Windows XP Service Pack 2 built-in Bluetooth software support this profile.

The new Bluetooth Remote Control tool enables users to easily and visually map keyboard and mouse functions to a mobile phone's keypad. Virtually any application can be controlled without installing any additional software. The software allows import and export of customized control mapping images tailored to suit specific phone models. The application generates an HID profile which can be beamed to a Bluetooth-enabled handset using serial/USB, Infrared or Bluetooth without requiring any configuration changes.
