Unity4Life's Games|Shadow dongle adds the PS3 to your Blackberry's device menu and lets you use it as a remote! Gives you full control over movies and all the PS3's menus; even lets you use the keyboard. The dongle is coming out in April for $40, there is a video of it in action at the link above.

Neat, but pointless in my book. The ONLY remote I'm looking forward to, and I hope it hasn't been released otherwise I'm buying it, is when Harmony makes a compatible all in one remote that has BT built in

Should be easy for them to provide a version of the software for anything that used Windows Mobile. Phones, PDAs, etc. My Axim X51V has IR and BT...

ok maybe im the only one here who thinks this is badass but i dont care. if i can use my phones keyboard to type messages/surf the web on my ps3 then that is [email protected]# awesome. the ps3 has a browser that i never use b/c typing anything is a huge pain in the ass, and sure i could go buy a bluetooth keyboard or plug a usb one but that costs more money than i want to spend. the only prob is i dont have a crackberry
but hopefully a palm version will be released.

Why not just buy the PS3 controller keyboard add on for about the same price?

I hade the storm and returned it. It's simply not ready for prime time, imo.


This blackberry remote functionality would be cool if it were free or cheap. I would use it solely to type messages and with the web browser. At $40, I'd rather by one of those keyboards.

The dongle is $40, which is close to $50.

I got a refurb Curve a year ago for $50 and it still works fine.


I don't see much point in this. I'd rather keep using my full-size Logitech keyboard, or now that the new little add-on keyboard is available, that's an option too. I wouldn't use the Curve in place of my BD remote when watching movies. For $20, I like the Sony BD remote.

Here's a palm app called BlueRemote that makes the palm look like a bluetooth keyboard. Just pair it with the ps3 and use your palm as a keyboard. I tried the demo with my TX and it seems to work fine with the PS3. You might want to check it out.

You can get a curve for less than $50 with new activation and rebate. I paid $69 for mine when they first came out.
