Zeemote now available for BlackBerry – let the games begin!

Comments

Zeemote+console-quality games+Pico Projector+8900 = An incredible mobile gaming experience.

We first got a look at the Zeemote over a year ago when we were writing about them on QuicklyBored and then at BBDC 2008, they brought it to the BlackBerry world. The Zeemote is an interesting addition to the world of BlackBerry gaming, a market that is still young but has a great deal of potential.

Now officially out of beta testing and ready for the BlackBerry community, Zeemote has some great implications for not only gaming but for other random BlackBerry uses that we’ve been testing here around the office. One example of this is with vPost. You can set vPost with the Zeemote so that you have a remote trigger for your camera. This makes for some interesting live action pics.

In terms of gaming, Zeemote fills in the gap where the BlackBerry lacks. If you’re an avid BlackBerry gamer, you know that when the game starts getting difficult, the keyboard on the device makes it impossible. You need the dexterity and precision of a brain surgeon. The Zeemote takes this stress away and lets you enjoy your games.

The Zeemote will be available in ShopBlackBerry.com this summer.

When he wasn’t gambling, drinking, or twitter live-blogging, BlackBerry Cool contributer Nan Palmero was roaming around Las Vegas with a camera to bring you the goods from CES 2009. One of his first stops was at the Zeemote booth, a BlackBerry Cool 15 presenter and all around cool company that makes a sweet bluetooth controller for smartphone gaming. While the Zeemote JS1 controller is only out in Europe and Mexico right now, you can expect it to launch in Canada and the U.S. in a few months.

Some of you may remember us mentioning Nintaii by Mobigloo back in October when we discussed the finalists for the BlackBerry Developer Challenge. ‘Nintai,’ a Japanese Kanji that means “patience” offers users a great gaming experience from start to finish. More recently, I also reviewed this app back in November, giving it a healthy and well deserved 4 out of 5.
