I first saw Zeemote for BlackBerry back at the BlackBerry Developer Conference late last year when it was in its early stages. Zeemote will be launched this summer (first in Europe by the sounds of it) and will enable you to play BlackBerry games using the Zeemote JS1 Bluetooth controller so long as you have the Zee Key app on your device (which remaps your Berry's buttons and trackball to the remote's inputs). Pretty cool! You can learn more at Zeemote.com.

Question of the Day: I'm really curious to know how many CrackBerry readers out there are interested and would buy/use the Zeemote on a regular basis? Are you ramping up your BlackBerry gaming??

I sort of Zeesucks. I know this is not very creative but "gaming" on a phone just does not cut it.

40 Euros = 53.62 U.S. dollars = 36.24 British pounds

Quite expensive for something you'd probs hardly use

this things looks as useless as the E-Helmet (ATHF reference).

I don't see myself running out to purchase one. If I game on my blackberry, it's usually just while waiting at the doctor's office or something like that. If I really intend to be mobile gaming, I bring my PSP along.

* On another note ...
I had to LOL at the screen on the blackberry at the end of the video. I know it was just the loading screen for the game, but it made me laugh anyway. Very professional. :)

It's more an issue about the games than the device. Give me some good games that would warrant this then I would...

this will be a sweet add-on for the storm. with the processing power of the storm double the psp games will be getting sweet.

I could see using a remote like this on a PC game or a console game, but just can't see running out to buy one for the 1 or 2 games I might like to play on my BlackBerry, and certainly not at the projected price range.
