Cell phones have been getting rapidly more complex for some years leaving their TV controlling brethren doing little more that they were twenty years ago. Well, that was before the tvCompass SR 1500 Digital Media Remote. This remote makes traditional models look like those brick mobile phones from the 1980’s that ran on car batteries!
Heres a list of some of the features of this remote:
- 802.11b/g WiFi (connects to the internet to download software updates)
- Automatic system configuration
- WAP browser (supports Flash and J2ME)
- RSS reader
- TV-guide app.
- 2.2-inch LCD screen
- Screen resolution: 320 × 240
- QWERTY keyboard
- Server backup
In addition it can control up to 15 devices independently.
In fact there seems to be only one feature problem with this device — it runs Windows CE! (Oh dear!).
