Video: BlueputDroid - Android Phone as a PS3 Bluetooth Keyboard
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!"

Useless it will not allow me to use it as I have ads disabled in my phone. Keeps asking me to upgrade to Pro version but that isn't available. I'll wait till a "pro" version is around to try.
Luckily I bought one a mini bluetooth keyboard and they sent two so I have more than one for my three Ps3's but having my Droid available would just be awesome as I always have it in my pocket or my Droid X is at least always within arms reach.
