One of the key features of the DROID XYBOARD is the IR port for controlling your TV, cable or satellite box, AV receiver, etc. The Dijit Universal Remote app comes pre-loaded so you will be ready to go out of the box. It’s fairly intuitive and works well except for the issues I had customizing (see video).
This is a great feature, but I’m not sure if I would want to dedicate my tablet to this because what happens if you’re in the middle of a game and someone wants to check the listings guide or change the channel? For me, a simple Logitech programmable remote control makes more sense, but I do like the integration of being able to view the listings guide on the XYBOARD itself.
The Digit Universal Remote app is not an exclusive to Motorola as it’s available in the Android Market. It’s compatible with any device that has IR, devices paired with the Griffin Beacon for Android, or over WiFi with Roku Media Players. You will find the Dijit app pre-loaded on the XYBOARD 10.1 and the XOOM 2 as well. You can checkout my initial hands on video of the DROID XYBOARD 8.2, and look for my full review soon.
