Kulesh Software has released Veta Universal UIQ Edition. The software turns a Sony Ericsson P800 cell phone into a remote controller for your Bluetooth-equipped Mac.
Veta Universal UIQ Edition is actually an application developed to run on UIQ, a user interface for the Symbian operating system. The Sony Ericsson P800 is a cell phone that uses Symbian UIQ. Veta Universal works hand-in-hand with
Arboreal Software’s Romeo, a Bluetooth remote control program for Mac OS X.
With Veta Universal UIQ Edition installed on the P800 and Romeo installed on the Mac, users are able to remotely control applications like iTunes, Keynote and DVD Player. Users can also write their own AppleScripts to control other applications.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.2 or later; Bluetooth, Romeo 0.9.1 or later, and a Sony Ericsson P800 (or P900) telephone. The software costs US$11 to register.
