Belkin Says No JoyPod in the Works

Well, it seems the App Store gaming accessory from Belkin was too good to be true.

Belkin has contacted us and confirmed that there is no ‘JoyPod’ accessory in the works and that it is “simply a false rumor". “We have no plans to release such a product," wrote Melody Chalaban, Belkin’s Public Relations Manager, in an email.

Apologies to Belkin for the misinformation. It seems the iControlPad remains our best bet for a 3rd party gaming accessory for the iPhone. Without Apple’s involvement, however, it is unlikely we’ll see App Store support.
