Gaming on any cell phone is a challenge to say the least; the tiny buttons are far from applicable.  The BGP100, which appears to be yet another after market game pad for cell phones is actually an innovative piece of kit.  The device can expand to accommodate handsets up to 55mm wide and works with a variety of smartphone platforms including Windows Mobile, PocketPC and Symbian UIQ.  Looks a little closer and you’ll notice that the two halves can be formed together to form a full blown game pad in the event that your phone is of an obscure shape or too big for fit.  The BGP100 connects to the handset via Bluetooth and takes one AAA battery, which should allow for 3.5 hours of play.

It’s available here for $88 US ($129 AUS)

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
