How-To: Use a HTC Touch Diamond or Touch Pro as a mouse replacement
GRemote requires a connection with the computer (WiFi, bluetooth or USB) and the computer must be running Windows or Linux. Installation is a somewhat involved process and the application is very much in beta, but it should generally work as advertised with the abovementioned devices and may soon also work with other, similar devices (such as the Samsung OMNIA).
iPhone users can turn to "Air Mouse" for similar functionality (available on the Apple App Store for $5.99).

Weird, HTC makes a fair great amount of money and they don't mind letting apps be used on their devices for free. Whats this, a company that makes a ton of money but doesn't over * their customers!?!?!? Preposterous, shut HTC down!
HTC doesn't exactly have the application resources infrastructure in place that Apple does. Can you believe that a system that allows iPhone users to access an online Application store full of apps certified not to work all janky (see: windows mobile) actually costs money to maintain? Preposterous, stifle my comment!
OK. I will stifle it. Google's App store will allow any users to post all the free apps they want. Instead of a complicated approval process that costs Apple money, they will inplement a simple survival-of-the-fittest style rating system. Best of both worlds. I predict Apple will completely rethink their app store when Android lauches full swing.
