Pocket-lint: A Swedish company called Gametel is about to launch a new accessory for Android phone users that will let them play games using a Bluetooth gaming D-pad rather than the phone’s touchscreen.
The new Gametel controller in effect turns your Android phone, be it HTC or Samsung, into an Xperia Play allowing you to play games without the faff of on-screen controls.
Pocket Gamer: Apple's iOS is a wonderful platform for gaming. After all, where else can you download thousands upon thousands of quality titles for as little as 69p / 99c?
If you think the iOS and Android iControlPad Bluetooth peripheral and the recently featured Gametel wireless controller both look more than a little bit similar, you're not the only one.
Pocket Gamer really likes the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, especially now it's on sale for a reasonable price but it's not surprised some people don't fancy carrying around a rather bulky smartphone for relatively short periods of actual game playing time.
That's why a Swedish company called Fructel came up with the idea of creating the Gametel gamepad.
