Lumigon's T2 smartphone wants to control your TV, obey your commands

Ever notice how often you lose your TV remote, but how rarely lose track of that social lifeline you call a smartphone? So did the folks at Denmark-based Lumigon, that’s why they’ve put their Scandinavian heads together to build the Lumigon T2, a Android 4.0 smartphone that’s also a universal remote control. In addition to this handset’s 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 8 megapixel rear facing camera and Bang & Olufsen ICEpower sound, this phone’s northern lip can copy commands from remote controls and emulate them using on screen buttons or programmable gestures. Above the T2′s 3.8-inch Gorilla glass screen is a dual-action “activity button” that can reportedly be programmed to perform any function the phone has to offer — like activating an LED flashlight, initiating speed-dial or even turning on and off your TV. Sound pretty sweet? Sure it is — just don’t lose it in the couch. The T2 is scheduled to hit select markets in Europe in Asia later this year.
