Your Android-driven phone can now be used as an advanced remote for Google TV,according to a recent report from Engadget.

Logitech may have it's own set of accessories for its Revue Google TV box, but the best peripheral may just be that Android phone you already have, which can be turned into a full-fledged remote control with the Logitech Revue app that's just hit the Android Market. Like other similar smartphone remote apps, it will give you both a trackpad and a keyboard in addition to the usual remote control buttons, and it's thankfully free to download. Hit up Android Market to find it right now, or head on past the break if you'd prefer to download it QR code-style.

Note that Apple has done this for Apple TV already. And there are multiple ways to turn your iPhone into a TV remote using Apps.

The two screen experience for Social TV just got a whole lot more interesting. Who's going to build the first Social TV app that also controls content and perhaps pushes and pulls content to others?
