    Samsung Smartphone GamePad turns your phone into a game console - Liliputing (click for full article)

    -- People have been playing games on their smartphones for about as long as there have been smartphones - but there are challenges involved in touchscreen gaming. You can't actually feel the buttons, and sometimes your thumbs are actually covering part of the action.

    So there's a whole cottage industry for makers of accessories that add physical game controller buttons to smartphones and tablets. Now Samsung is launching its own official gamepad designed for use with its Galaxy smartphones and tablets.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Game Edition will come with a GamePad - Liliputing (click for full article)

    -- Samsung recently launched the Smartphone GamePad, a wireless game controller designed to work with phones and small tablets. You can buy one, pair it with a phone, and sort of make your own NVIDIA Shield type gaming device.

    Or you can buy a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Game Edition, a tablet that comes with the gamepad in the box. Well, not yet you can't - but it looks like Samsung plans to launch the Tab 3 Game Edition soon.

    German site All About Samsung got an early look at the new Game Edition Bundle and reports it's designed not just for gaming on the go, but also for connecting your table to a TV to play Android games on a larger screen.

    The kit consists of a Galaxy Tab 8.0 WiFi, Samsung's recently released GamePad, and an HDMI adapter.
