    Hi guys,

    I'm considering buying a Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. It comes with Honeycomb.

    There's a lot of reasons I am wanting it, but I need to be specific -my Logitech DiNovo Mini (bluetooth HTPC keyboard) is dying, and I want an android app which can replace it.

    I use the DiNovoMini to control popular media player software XBMC on my HTPC. The DiNovo Mini has a dpad, a trackpad, and a keyboard all in one.

    So far I've looked at GMote and RemoteDroid, which look good (have mouse and keyboard functionality), but no easy-access directional-buttons which I would like, so as to control the XBMC UI on the HTPC. Better still would be a set of media controls (FFW, RW, play/pause, Vol, etc.) although I realise that might be a stretch!

    Is anything like this available on the android (or otherwise) market? I'm sure it is technically possible, but I am brand new to Android and have no such knowledge.

    Hope someone can help?
    regards.

    Two Apps I'm currently playing with:

    Unified Remote
    Win Remote

    Basically they are customizable control app that allow you to set up remote control screens. They also come with pre-configured with set ups for various media players and media centers.

    You can also search the market for XBMC remotes and come up with a few specialized apps.
