UTILITY: Microsoft Remote Control for Smartphone

It's some time ago that I wrote a tutorial on how to remote access your Smartphone from your PC but the situation is more or less still the same - there is no commercial remote tool like SOTI's Pocket Controller available for Smartphones.

However, Microsoft released a set of "Windows Mobile Developer Power Toys" I haven't seen and missed until today. It also includes a new version of "ActiveSync Remote Display" which display Pocket PC applications on your desktop or laptop without needing any device side configuration. However - this also works with Smartphone and best of all - now without configuring the Smartphone as you had to do before with my tutorial above.

Just run the ActiveSync Remote Display client on your PC while your Smartphone is connected through ActiveSync and everything is done automatically. The result looks like that:

As before, with my workaround tutorial the PC access is the same:

  • Left Softkey: F1
  • Right Softkey: F2
  • D-Pad Navigation: Cursor Keys
  • Action Button: Enter
  • Home Screen: Windows Key
  • Back: Backspace/ESC
  • Volume Up: F6
  • Volume Down: F7
  • [*] key: F8
  • [#] key: F9

It's still not that comfortable like professional tools but the best (and only) way to get your Smartphone screen displayed on your PC monitor.

A great find. But, be warned, do  NOT press the $-key on your keyboard, it crashes the phone, at least mine...
