Uses for the XP6700

I've had my XV6700 for about 5 months now and it has become my 'Swiss army knife'. I have found some really interesting uses for it since I've had it and I'd like to share some of them with you.

1. The built in Wi-Fi makes it a 'remote control' for my home automation. With this I control lights, blinds, fans, etc.

2. Provides me with access to my home theater setup. No remotes! just my phone controlling every AV device I own through and application called NetRemote.

3. Provides me with an HTML interface to my home audio jukebox server.

4. By calling a local webpage I can view webcams I have set up around my house.

5. I can port a gig's worth of music or videos from home to work by pulling stuff off of my wireless local network at home and putting it on a miniSD card in the phone.

.. and that's just because it has Wi-Fi capabilities. I'll be selling one of my 4155's because I don't need three controllers for my house.

Because the XV6700 runs on the EVDO network, I can:

6. have access to all of my mp3's, pictures, and videos that are on my local network at home. I can even watch live TV that's being broadcasted from my house from anywhere I am. I can do this because of the broadband wireless network the XV6700 runs on and an application called ORB. Check out orb.com... it's free!

7. of course, I have internet access wherever I am so I'm never without email, instant messenger, SMS or MMS. The phone is also a camera/video camera so I can shoot something and literally in a minute or so, have it sitting on my home network where I can distribute it as I need.

8. I am always up to date as far as my work and play schedule because of the syncing capabilities with outlook and other online calendar apps.
