    This may sound like a dumb question... but is there an APP that can turn the playbook into a bluetooth keyboard and trackpad for a PC? I am thinking about making a media centre PC and curious if my Playbook could be a bluetooth keyboard/trackpad.

    Thanks!

    I don't believe so. But if I recall, a bbphone with bridge can work (edited to add) as a mouse and keyboard with the computer.

    There is a mouse app. It's actually a touchpad but no keypad/keyboard. Look up "touchpad" in app world. They will give you the link for the PC side software download. I think it was $0.99. Only a two star review. Good luck.

    I looked up Luko Remote looks very promising, however, my Media Center would be based on Linux... any knowledge of Luko Remote working with a linux based computer? There are no apps similar to Luko which use bluetooth?

    You could try LogMeIn to determine whether the functionality suits your requirement.

    Freemote, CompRemote, and All In One Remote all can work over wifi. All in One also has bluetooth capability. Whether any will work with Linux, I don't know.

    I use CompRemote for just the purpose you stated. It works perfectly. But I have no idea about Linux, sorry.

    You could use any free VNC or RDP app to remotely control your computer by mirroring the desktop on the PB, as long as your media centre PC has that connectivity.
