Samsung outs GamePad for its smartphones

Samsung outs GamePad for its smartphones

No, it’s not a new smartphone by Samsung this time, in fact it is something different – a gaming accessory that is designed to connect with your Samsung smartphone to allow you to play games better and easier.

The new Samsung product is called GamePad and is in fact a regular gaming handheld device that allows users to better interact with their mobile devices and play better and for longer. The new GamePad is compatible with some (but not all) Samsung mobile devices – for example it works with Samsung Galaxy smartphones with 4-inch and 6.3-inch displays as well as Galaxy Note III, S4, Note II, Galaxy S III. In addition the new device works with Samsung tablets and other devices using Bluetooth 3.0 or NFC 3.0. An important prerequisite is that your mobile device must be running Android 4.3. As to the GamePad it consists of a chassis that houses two analog sticks, four action buttons, shoulder keys, an eight-way D-pad, a Select button and a Start button.

You think it is too good to be true? You will be right – the GamePad has a major disadvantage and it is that the number of games supported is very limited. The pricing of the new device helps somewhat – in Europe you can have it for EUR 57.89 and EUR 81.90 now.
