Droid - Imagio Can Become FiOS TV Remotes

Today Verizon Wireless announced a partnership with its parent company, Verizon Communications, that will allow subscribers to Verizon's FiOS TV services to use their Motorola Droid or HTC Imagio as a remote control. The Verizon FiOS Mobile Remote app lets the Droid and Imago do everything that the standard FiOS remote can do, such as view the guide, get program information, and access settings. It also includes the ability to transfer photos from the handset to the TV screen. Droid and Imagio owners can download the application from their respective platforms' apps stores. An in-home Wi-Fi network is required to make the FiOS Mobile Remote application work. The application and service are both free.
