"Control your PLAYSTATION3 and access its media content on your Aino anywhere, anytime using Remote Play with PLAYSTATION3. Remote Play with PLAYSTATION3, initially developed for PSP, enables users to control and access media content on PLAYSTATION3 from their phone. This can be done via a local network between PLAYSTATION3 and Aino in your home or via the internet from anywhere in the world. For TV lovers in Italy, France, Spain, Germany and in the UK users can also enjoy the PlayTV service on PLAYSTATION3 via the Aino. Watch, pause and record live TV from a huge range of free channels via Aino on the go.

Aino also introduces Media Home, an application that pulls media content from Media Go on your PC over Wi-Fi to your phone automatically. Users just insert their Aino into its charging stand and it automatically synchronizes with all the latest media content on their PC. You are always ready to go with the latest content on your phone.
