First Look: Philips SJM3151 iPod-Friendly Universal Remote

You already know we dig Phillips remotes. has a look at another cool remote from Phillips, the SJM3151 iPod-Friendly Universal Remote. This is one of the first remotes we've seen based on the Zigbee wireless standard. According to Crave:

But why clutter the coffee table with yet another remote? That's where the Philips SJM3151 comes in. The remote does double duty as a standard six-device universal remote and a full-service iPod remote, complete with a built-in LCD screen that mirrors that of a docked iPod. Based on the Philips SRU9600, the remote can be programmed to control via infrared the usual bevy of home theater gear--TV, cable/satellite box, DVD player, AV receiver--but it also uses the Zigbee RF wireless standard to communicate with the included iPod dock at distances up to 300 feet.

Wow! If you looking for a pretty powerful remote, you want to keep an eye for this one. Crave says we should see the SJM3151 around the Fall of 2007 for around $180.

A remote for $180 is pretty costly, but considering the 300 feet communication range, it might be acceptable. Philips seems to be really addicted to iPod, but who else won't?!
