Hmmm… I never even knew this thing existed, but it looks great and fun. The iFrogz Advantage Mobile Gaming Controller is an accessory for the iPhone that adds physical controls to your gaming making them much more gamer friendly. Hopefully one day they’ll come up with one for Android devices, now that would be something I’d buy!
-The Caliber Advantage™ from iFrogz®, a ZAGG Inc brand (NASDAQ: ZAGG), is a combination mobile gaming controller and protective case for Apple devices that incorporates the newly announced iOS 7. Unveiled at the Worldwide Developers Conference, the iOS 7 Game Controller API (Application Program Interface) will allow both large and independent developers to utilize standard access to game controller functionality on Apple’s portfolio of mobile devices, including the iPhone 5.
Previewed at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the Caliber Advantage was created to address growing demand for the ability to develop and play more immersive games on Apple’s operating system, iOS, and will soon be able to give gamers and developers full console-style gaming in the palm of their hand.
Compatible with the iPhone 5 and the fifth-generation iPod touch, the Caliber Advantage provides 360-degree motion control with viewing options in both portrait and landscape position. Gaming action is made possible through left and right slide-out analog controls that feature responsive keys for an accurate, high-quality gaming experience. Available this fall for $59.99, the Caliber Advantage will also feature an integrated lithium polymer battery offering 10-12 hours of continuous play without the need for a charge.
In addition to the Advantage mobile gaming controller, iFrogz offers a complete line of headset accessories for mobile gamers, including the iFrogz Caliber Ammo and Stealth. Later this year, iFrogz will expand its gaming portfolio to smartphones and tablets with the addition of a universal game controller.
