Cheap touch screen for MCE

I've been think about this for a while now, about purchasing a cheap Nokia 770 Internet Tablet and running a remote control program for MCE called MCEGuru.
It looks pretty good and the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet has a touch screen!
I'm currently using ngRC on my Sony PSP which is a fantastic remote control application for Media Center but I'm not sure if further development is planned for it? I wrote about ngRC previously on my blog

That's a very good question and one I hadn't thought about, I will try and find out if it can?

thank you! I'm going to buy a nokia 810 asap if it does.

Still no news on this, I tried to email the developer and got an error on this website, I then tried to register on the forums and that didn't work either. If anyone knows if MCEGuru can be used to also control extenders let us know!

Have you tried MCEGuru yet - if so what are your thoughts? I'm looking for a touchscreen remote and have been experimenting with Media Maestro which is a flash enabled web app. The thing that annoys me about a lot of web based remotes is they run as a different thread to the Media Center so if you start a playlist in Media Center you can't then switch and control it with these remotes (and vice versa).

No I never did try MCEGuru as I did not have a Nokia Internet Tablet device to test it with! Have you seen ngRC, Next Generation Remote Control ? It's a free web based control app for media center.

Guys, I have been looking for a similar program like ngRC and MCEGuru for a long long time. MCEGuru doesnt work on windows 7 and I dont hv a Nokia 770. Tried ngRC but with mixed results.
Do you guys know about any other software like these?
Thanks mate
