I tried out the remote and I have to admit, it’s very easy to use and very impressive. I’m trying to stay awake for the update. I feel more anxious than a little kid waiting for the Easter Bunny. The BlackBerry is much better than chocolate any day.
The remote not only has the ability to use your BlackBerry device as a mouse, but also as a keyboard with all the keys included.
