Use Your Android Device As A Bluetooth Input Device for the PS3 [Video]

An application from the ranks of XDA called BlueputDroid is now in beta. The application allows you to pair your Android phone up with your PlayStation 3 and use the phone as an input device. You can use the phone’s keyboard to input text and there’s a virtual trackpad that lets you move the cursor inside the web browser. Not all devices are supported, but this is a beta so that could change. You can find the list of devices over at XDA. You’ll also need to disable any ad blocker you may be using as the app will refuse to work otherwise. [PocketNow]

    Sound ok, but it would be better if it was use as a remote. Or better yet as a microphone

    @Justin, a bluetooth keyboard is a bluetooth keyboard, no difference between PS3 or PC one.

  • dork
