    Yes, with BlackBerry Bridge. He is a video demonstrating it.

    And yes, you can use your BlackBerry as a remote for watching movies on your TV, or presenting slide-shows.

    It shows how to get your email ect using a 9900 but I didn't see how you could pick a folder, open a movie pause? Fast forward? Hopefully that can be achieved

    If you watch the whole thing he demonstrates "Presentation Mode" for slide-shows.
    Play at 2:20 he says "Think about all the different ways you could use your smart-phone as a remote control for your tablet. Especially when you've got it plugged it into HDMI you could use it to (uhh) Play or Pause movies even as a power-point presenter here with docs to go put it into Presenter mode..."

    A BlueTooth keyboard with built-in trackpad works great for this... Or even just a BT mouse, if all you want to do is control the media player.
