Samsung Debuts GamePad for Android Phones

Samsung today announced the GamePad, a gaming accessory for its Android smartphones. The GamePad resembles a gaming control unit from today's living room gaming consoles. It supports a number of Samsung smartphones, cradling devices with screens ranging from 4 inches to 6.3 inches. It connects to smartphones via Bluetooth and an associated application. The GamePad provides physical controls for games, and connects to TVs through an HDMI cable or AllShare Screen Mirroring. The GamePad requires Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and Samsung recommends it be used with devices such as the Galaxy S III and S4, and the Note II and Note 3. The GamePad includes support for NFC for easy device pairing. The Mobile Console app for the GamePad is available for download through the Samsung App store. The Samsung GamePad is launching first in European markets with others to follow in the coming weeks. Samsung has not shared specific plans to offer the GamePad in the U.S. yet.
Samsung's third-generation phablet is an impressive improvement and the Gear adds a unique twist to how we interact with smartphones.
Verizon's version of Samsung's behemoth impresses with good call quality, excellent LTE 4G performance, and exceptional battery life. This Android superphone has a lot going for it.
The Galaxy Note 3 from Samsung is a powerful Android smartphone for Verizon thanks to the S Pen and multitasking.
Samsung takes another stab at the Note phablet and might finally have a winner on its hands. Here's what we like and don't like about Samsung's latest large-screen Android smartphone.

Samsung today provided information about a software update for the Galaxy S III. The Premium Suite is an add-on that includes a handful of new features such as a split-screen mode similar to the one on the Galaxy Note II.
4.8" display HD+ resolution
Snapdragon S4 processor 2 GB RAM
2,100 mAh battery
Memory Card Slot, Headphone Jack (3.5mm), NFC
would seem heavy to me...
MOGA PRO + Note 3 = Retro & current gaming heaven
Go to amazon, read the review By Branden Crom Jr.
It says it all..
Street Fighter Alpha
Link to the Past
Sonic New(Android) & Old
THe list goes on!
This is a decent idea, basically uses what you have without haing to get a dedicated android gaming platform like an Ouya. So depending on what they charge for the Moga, get double use. That and the phone has more power.
