Jeff Strasser outlines on how to use your Motorola Q as a PowerPoint Clicker on his MSDN blog
Perhaps one of the coolest features of the recently released Motorola Q is the ability to remote control (via bluetooth) your desktop PC. In the bluetooth options you'll find an app called 'PC Remote', which, when run, creates a partnership with your bluetooth enabled desktop or notebook PC and installed the Q as a bluetooth HID (keyboard/mouse device).
The app then has three built in features...
- PC remote - gives you the ability to control the windows desktop.
- PowerPoint remote - gives you the ability to use your Q as a 'clicker' PowerPoint slide shows.
- Media Player remote - let's you control Windows Media Player on your desktop PC from your Q.
This is a rockin' feature that I haven't seen talked about in many reviews yet.
Here are the steps Motorola has to set it up....its very very simple and give you a very nice UI on the screen to show you how the keys on the Q map to your PC...
From the Bluetooth® application, select BT PC Remote.
Press the Add key.
The Motorola Q will prepare itself to be paired with from a PC.
Initiate a pairing from the PC.
Exchange passkeys with the PC.
Press the Accept key.
The Motorola Q keypad can now be used to control navigation of the PC desktop.
Press the Menu key for more options.
The Motorola Q keypad can also control Windows Media Player, and PowerPoint.
