Sony Ericsson Aino supports PS3 Remote Play

Sony Ericsson has begun shipping the Aino, the first handset to support Remote Play on Sony's own PS3 game console. The Aino is a touchscreen slider, another first for the company, and was introduced alongside the Satio this spring. With the Aino, users will be able to turn on or off their PS3s, navigate the XMB interface and access the web as well as DRM-free media saved on the drive.

They can also sign into the PlayStation Network and chat with friends, as well as shop or download demos from the PlayStation Store. Watching and recording shows from PlayTV is also possible via the Aino. The 3-inch Aino touchscreen mimics a PS3 controller's button layout, with the 0 becoming the circle and the 8 the triangle.

A Media Home feature allows syncing media content with a PC over a Wi-Fi network when the phone is charging.

The handset otherwise features WiFi DLNA certification and supports 3G HSPA networks. It ships with a Bluetooth headset and there is an 8.1-megapixel camera with flash and image stabilization. There is also assisted GPS capability and a microSDHC card slot with a bundled 8GB card.

A release date for North America or pricing for the device is still unknown, but the device was designed from the ground up to support North American networks and the 'a' designation indicates a North American version of the phone.

The Aino will be available in white and black in the near future in New Zealand, Mexico and Chile.
