Philips SJM3151 Remote

Philips today backed up its universal remote series with the SJM3151, a new model tailored with iPods in mind. The six-device controller ships with its own iPod dock and offers full track navigation through an integrated LCD, but includes general buttons that can be custom-programmed for movie players, TVs, and other devices. Problems with distance have also been solved by the choice of wireless format, according to the company. Using the new ZigBee standard lets the remote tune the iPod from as far as 300 feet away where other devices have to use the line-of-sight IR transmitter.

The remote should work with most dockable iPods and is scheduled to ship sometime during the fall for $180. An alternate version with a USB ZigBee adapter that will control PC-based music should be available for the same price and at the same time. [via Crave]
