Sony to launch Wii-style remote for mobile phone

W760i gets Bluetooth games controller in Holland

Sony Ericsson is bundling a Bluetooth games controller with its W760i Walkman smartphone.

The package, which will initially be available in Holland, features a Zeemote JS1, which is similar to a Nintendo Wii Nunchuck, and will allow users to control games played on their handset.

"Mobile gaming will never be the same as the Zeemote JS1 launches through our first commercial relationship with Sony Ericsson" said Jim Adams of Zeemote.

There are two compatible games already pre-loaded on the handset, while a further 14 are available to download from the Fun & Downloads section on Sony’s website. No release date has been given for the UK yet.
