As regular readers know, I've been thinking about whether you really need a slideout keyboard any more. Then along comes this nifty little gadget that gives all kinds of gaming controls for any smart phone that has a BlueTooth connection.
It's a pretty good idea. Supposedly the device was originally going to be iPhone only and would connect via the patented Apple connector, but the company decided it was just easier to bypass that idea and go with BlueTooth.
It's currently being sold through ThinkGeek and is compatible with that website's games in the iCade iPad arcade cabinet. However, it will also work with Android as well.
It uses its own power source so the only thing that will drain your phone is the actual game you are playing. The price is $75, which doesn't seem outrageous, and can be ordered by clicking on the link above.
