    Don't you guys think it is pretty sweet that you can control your PS3 with a droid? Well, it kinda connects it, but its still cool. [​IMG]

    Not at all. It'd be too uncomfortable.

    Meh. Decent idea but nothing is as comfortable as just using a standard USB keyboard.

    It doesn't work on samsung and htc phones with htc sense (like my evo 4g)

    I had cyanogen mod running for a while and the blueput droid is actually pretty neat to use for netflix and typing....

    I think this sounds awesome. I dont have a wireless keyboard, so basically I have been resigned to using the PS3 controller and the cruddy virtual keyboard. Having a nice big keyboard on my Evo for browsing online or Netflix etc will be awesome!

    Interesting. Too bad none of the Cyanogen ROMs for my Inspire are to my liking. I could see myself using this for like media purposes. Hook my laptop to the TV, my fatass(not literally) on the couch 8 feet away watch a marathon of some show or another without ever getting up.

    Interesting. All I'd need is a decent phone capable of doing such a thing. (Being a different-than-average teenager, it's not unusual that I place priority on gaming consoles more than communication devices...)

    Urgh, why bother?! Unless you're some crazy sperg why would anyone want this? If you have a PS3 you have a controller you can control it with anyway... Probably faster to use too.

    You can already use your DS to do it.
