While Apple’s iPad is the darling of home automation controller solutions at the moment. Sling Media founder, Blake Krikorian, is introducing a custom Crestron app for Android, dubbed R2, that will turn your tablet or mobile handset into the ultimate control device — besting iOS solutions/capabilities in terms of instant readiness, multitasking, and flexibility (you’ve got read his comments on the topic at CE Pro). Krikorian originally developed the app for his home to suit his needs, but now finds the app “just to cool” to keep to himself. Krikorian will sell the app under his spin-off company, id8 Group, later next year (possibly earlier) for around $99 a pop. Until then, he’s demonstrating the app on a Samsung GALAXY Tab, HTC EVO, and Dell Streak at the Crestron booth at CEDIA Expo 2010. A brief demo video is attached below.
