BlueMaemo on N900 To Remote Your Mac and PC

26 February 2010Entry by

On one of my wanderings through the internet again, I found the BlueMaemo for Nokia N900 application. I read the short instruction, but didn’t really figured out, for what it’s good for. The instruction describes something like using your N900 as a wireless controller for the Playstation over the bluetooth connection. For I have no Playstation, I wondered, if I could connect to my Macbook through BlueMaemo.

I downloaded BlueMaemo from the Extras-Devel and installed it on my N900 through the application manager. Start the application, choose “Wait for connection” on the startscreen and go to the connection routine with your Mac, the same as I wrote about in my previous post, how to connect Nokia N900 to Macbook. But this time, choose “Every device” when it comes to this part. When the routine is finished, you should have an established connection to your Macbook, if not, just start the BlueMaemo application again, but this time tab on “Establish connection”. Choose your device from the list and confirm the connection. You are now connected!

BlueMaemo for Nokia N900 offers a lot of options to choose about. Try them out by yourself. Mouse or Keyboard, Gamepad or Presentation, all of them should work smoothly. Very impressive to remote the Mac with the N900, controlling the mousecursor, writing text with the keyboard, or do presentations. Control even your Media Center with the N900! It will work with your PC too, but I only have bluetooth on my Macbook. You will find further instructions here: also for connection with Windows and Linux.

Fact is, BlueMaemo can be a very useful app for business (f.e. presentations), homeuse (for Media Center as a remote-controller) and gamers. It really attracts interest, when it comes to a live show.
