If you fancy being able to control or manage your Android device from you desktop, take a look at a project that XDA forum member BootsSiR has been working on.
Based on the devs’ Nexus One, Droid2Desk should work with any Android device running Eclair or higher. The desktop Windows app allows you to connect to your phone via WiFi and control various functions such as view and send SMS, view notifications such as GMail and GTalk as well as remotely control the camera and transfer files to and from the device.
Additionally, the app shows device details such as name, type, manufacturer, battery status and battery info.
In the SMS view, as well as showing all current SMS conversations on the device, Droid2Desk also shows individual conversations and allows you to continue on an SMS conversation. The camera currently takes still shots, but the XDA dev has stated that video could be a possibility.
Droid2Desk is currently work in progress, so to follow the development and provide feedback, keep your eyes on the development thread._________
