    Big improvement over onscreen controls in many cases though. And why does game price come into it? Surely the alternative is spending e.g. £30 on PSP or similar games, which just makes it look like a bargain.

    Couldn't you just use a usb joypad with a android tablet? After all USB keyboards and mice seem to work fine. Would be a lot cheaper too - All you'd need then is a decent clamp!

    This is supposed to be quite a sturdy little peripheral. I have an Xperia PLAY and I think the joypad makes gaming better. However, I agree, £50 is quite expensive.

    Dont forget you can play a vast number of online games on an android device. Meaning you could use this game pad to play reasonable games on your handheld.

    But yes £50 is too much for most of us to think of
    Wow (shadowsong): Arthran, Arthra, Arthrun, Amyle (I know, I'm inventive with names)

    Considering a ps3 controller as just an example is way under that, and this looks like it might be cheap quality wise, I'm going to have to disagree...

    So it's basically a knock-off of the iControlPad but more expensive, the nastiest-looking D-pad in the world, and without dual analog sticks.

    Re: News - Gametel Bluetooth gaming pad for iOS and Android

    For an item that uses Bluetooth, I'm not surprised at the price, though I don't actually think it's worth buying... Like someone said, a majority of the games are £1-5, and you don't really look for a full on gaming experience with portable items like the iPhone and iPad; at most, people play games on the bus for a few minutes or something.
