We just got word that Thinkgeek’s iCade, an arcade stand for your iPad, will ship “sometime around May 20th” or at least before May 31st. However, you can preorder the iCade now for $99.99, though it looks like it might already be back ordered.
The iCade’s inception was originally the result of an April Fool’s joke. But as interest grew and demand surged Thinkgeek saw an opportunity, as they have with other products of a similar ilk. As a result they partnered with ION, who is producing the kit and even signed up Atari, who just released a 100 classic game pack for iOS device.
According to Thinkgeek the iCade is compatible with the original and second generation iPad. It connects to both using Bluetooth.
