Griffin Beacon Universal Remote Now for Android

We recently reviewed the Griffin Beacon Universal Remote. At the time, the Griffin Beacon Universal Remote only worked with iOS devices, but today Griffin has announced a version for use with Android devices. Given that the actual device connects to the phone via Bluetooth, I was little surprised that it requires a separate SKU. I would have assumed that adding new platforms would simply require porting the Dijit app.

Android users have had a bit of a wait on their hands, but the Beacon is now available for use with phones and tablets running Android OS 2.3.3 or greater.
