Pivos XIOS DS Media Play! Android Media Player Review

The XIOS DS Sense Remote




The Sense remote is a little dressier than the original equipment. Here you not only have XIOS DS Sense painted on it, but the Android logo is also slightly present. The layout now offers a lock key, mute and zoom buttons, but since you can move the remote to move the cursor, the arrow keys now get a home, return, information and setting buttons around the large OK button.




This too will allow you to adjust the volume up and down with the small volume switch found on the left side of the remote.




At the bottom end of the remote, this time there isn't a battery tab in place since this battery is rechargeable. Once the XIOS DS is all set up, plug in the USB cable to the media player and the other end to here and the remote will begin its charging process.




I figured since I had them both, I would put them in an image side by side so you can see the differences without having to swap pages back and forth to see it.




Here is the charging cable for the remote. One end is mini-USB to plug into the remote and at the other end of four feet of cable is the standard USB connection to plug into one of the XIOS DS' multiple USB ports.




As for the receiver, you get a plain black mini-dingle to plug into the XIOS DS as you see that I have done. Once the mouse is charged, you simply use it. Both remotes work at the same time so you can battle with your buddies as to what to watch or what version of Angry Birds you are going to play.
