iControlPad updated their site with renderings of the planned iControlPad as well as answers to some frequent questions. iControlPad is a hardware accessory that will give the iPhone and iPod Touch PSP-style buttons for playing games.

The developers report that the iControlPad will be priced at (probably) under $30 and be shipping in July. They plan on supporting the iPhone and iPod Touch. At present, the iControlPad requires a jailbroken iPhone.

    I think that they should also consider bundling a DS style stylus. It's great to just need your finger most the time, but if your going to bother taking that whole control pad around, it might as well have a stylus that fits in it for a much more precise experience playing games. This could make the iphone the ultimate gaming potential platform.

    "I hope also that there good support comes for sdk games." there will be NO sdk app support as the sdk does not cater for hardware.

    Huh, I always rotate my iPhone the other way when I view it in landscape mode. Kind of weird seeing it oriented the way they've done it.

    They have the iPhone upside down. You won't be able to watch videos on it unless you turn the gaming device over. That's a major design flaw in my opinion.

    Any updates on this? Now that the iphone is out, this would be sweet for games like pacman.

    I'd like to see this come with some embedded speakers...the version depicted in the article looks like it covers up the tiny iphone speakers.

    A stylus is out, unless it can transfer electrical impulses from your finger, or create such an impulse internally, as this is the manner in which the iPhone's touch screen receives input.

    When watching a video it does not matter how you hold the iphone. The video flips itself over so it should be fine.

    Lots of games though do require the iPhone to be oriented the other way, they don't flip. I really hope the developers have thought of that! :)

    You could hold the ControlPad upside down, but then you'd also have to flip the controls in software.
