Controlling PS3 and tablets using BlackBerry Remote Bridge

Canadian company Research in Motion (RIM) has at times fallen on troubled waters, but for those that have stayed true to the BlackBerry brand may be interested to hear some news today regarding an update to the BlackBerry Bridge remote feature.

According to crackberry.com, the new updated version of the feature has now been seen alongside the company’s new PlayBook OS 2.0. Using the BlackBerry Bridge remote will allow you the user to basically control a variety of devices be it, tablets such as a Motorola Xoom, HTC Flyer or even the gaming PlayStation 3 console. Tested devices that the feature doesn’t work on are that of Apple, with the devices being subsequently locked out.

How does it work you may be asking? Courtesy of a video, which we’ve embedded below for your attention, the updated version works on a device that supports the Bluetooth HID profile.

Setting up the feature is reported to be fairly straightforward with the benefit of no app being required. There’s no denying that the BlackBerry Bridge feature will benefit the PlayBook and BlackBerry smartphones immensely if of course they are used as a pair.
