List of Mobile Phone to PC Projector Options
I often hear people asking about ways to project the screen of a mobile phone to a PC during presentations, so I decided to compile a short list of mobile phone to PC projector options. If you have any experience with mobile to PC projectors, please post a short comment.
The four discussed here are:
I personally use Mobilola Remote Control by Warelex ($35 USD). It’s a C++ app that works with Symbian S60v2 and S60v3 phones. I have been using it through an emulated WinXP (via Parallels on my Mac laptop) and it’s still really snappy. It also was extremely easy to set up. A few of the Mobilola Remote Control features are:
- Shows your phone screen on your PC
- Option to fully control your phone via PC
- Zoom in/out
- Full screen presentation option
- Video recording
- Works over Bluetooth or USB
- Demo your phone through Skype Video and record YouTube video presentations directly to YouTube with webcam driver functionality
If all you need is a single frame capture solution, then you should give Screenshot a try (if the link fails, then refresh your browser—I have noticed a problem with their servers). Screenshot for Symbian OS is a FREE program to take screenshot on your Symbian OS mobile phones (UIQ or S60). You can capture screenshot and save it to a file in JPEG, PNG, BMP or MBM format. The screenshot can be sent directly to a PC via Bluetooth or infrared and another mobile phone. It also supports continuous mode that allows you to capture screenshot every a few seconds.
If your looking for a hardware option, I have heard great things about Project-a-Phone ($295 USD).
