BlueMaemo Turns Internet Tablets into Input Devices

by Reads (6,695)

BlueMaemo is a utility that turns a Nokia Internet Tablet into a hardware keyboard and mouse for a PC that doesn’t have one, like a UMPC.

This application lets a Nokia N800 or N810 act as an input device using Bluetooth and the HID profile.

Users can a tap and drag on the Tablet’s touchscreen to move the mouse pointer on the PC.

BlueMaemo has been tested to be compatible with Linux BlueZ, Windows XP (SP2 and SP3), Windows XP Media Center Edition, and Windows Vista. The supported keyboard format is U.S. English, but other formats can be proposed to the developer.

Currently in the beta stage, BlueMaemo can be downloaded from the BlueMaemo Maemo Garage site. For more information, including a change log and what features are upcoming, visit the developer’s blog.
