In 2010 Samsung introduced their first Touch Remote with the C9000 series. In 2011 Samsung has a new 3-inch Touch Remote ready with a beautiful design that looks suspiciously close to that of the Apple iPhone 4.

Most TV remote controls are not exactly great looking. Samsung is now trying to introduce something new and fresh for consumers with their Touch Remote. The new Touch Remote not only takes care of the TV, it also lets you access photos, music and video on the 3-inch touch screen.

By connecting Samsung’s Touch Remote to your wireless home network, you can access photos, music and video from other DLNA-enabled devices in your home. If you want to share the picture or video clip with the party, you can transfer the media files to the large TV screen without hassle.

The Touch Remote is beautiful and elegant, even though it’s not exactly a fresh design but rather a iPhone 4 inspired approach. The 3-inch screen has a resistive touch screen with different icons on the home screen.

The Touch Remote has a full QWERTY keyboard function which makes it easy to use the integrated Smart TV functionality in the new Samsung flat panel TVs. It’s also a universal remote that can control other devices via Bluetooth or infrared.

Samsung's new Touch Remote comes bundled with Samsung's new D8000 LED range and D8000 plasma range, and can be purchased separately for other Samsung 2011 and 2010 TVs with wireless network access.

Samsung RMC30D will be available from April-May 2011 with Samsung's 2011 TVs. The price has not been announced.
