Sony Ericsson Launches user friendly PS3 Aino mobile phone handset

Sony-Ericsson-AinoSony Ericsson has launched their PlayStation 3 compatible mobile phone handset – Aino, featuring Remote Play which enables users to access and control their PS3. At Playstation blog Alex Cardon, Marketing manager at Sony Ericsson explains what benefits PS3 owners can expect.

“What can a consumer do with their PS3 via Aino?

Sony Ericsson Aino

Using an Aino, users can:

  • turn a PS3 on and off
  • browse and control the XMB user interface
  • access the internet and any DRM free media content saved on the hard drive
  • sign in to the PS3 network and message friends
  • shop for items in the PS3 store
  • watch and record live television using PlayTV

Is it easy to set up the Aino to work alongside a PS3?

Setting up the Aino to synchronise with a PS3 is easy. Simply register Aino on the Remote Play settings of a PS3 and an eight digit code will be sent to the handset for verification. Input this into Aino and it will automatically connect to the PS3. If you connect through an internet router and find it doesn’t work, you might need to change your router settings. You will need to check the router I/M and the PS3 on-line I/M.

How do I control my PS3?

Once the Aino and PS3 are connected, you can control all the media content on your PS3 through the mobile handset. It’s very intuitive with Aino replicating the buttons of a PS3 controller on its unique touch user interface. For example “0” for O, “8” for ∆, making it quick and easy to control content from the handset.
