At about the time the Nexus 7 tablet was hitting the Google Play store, rumors of multiple Nexus branded devices coming from multiple manufacturers started to swirl. The rumor was that there would be up to 5 different Nexus devices coming from different manufacturers by the end of this year. Now, with a new set of photos that showcase a Sony phone with Google labeled on the back instead of 'with Google', could this be the second Nexus device that will be hitting the Play store soon?
Well it seems that the LG device everyone has been dry humping in the news lately that was rumored to be the Nexus device from LG is in fact real. On top of that, it appears that a Russia site Onliner.by has managed to somehow get a hold of one and has done a full review of what is now called the LG Nexus 4.

Well with a little under 2 days to go the iControlPad 2 has reached its funding goal and will soon be available for purchase once the prototype gets sent out for mass production.
Yes, there are plenty of controllers out there heading our way over the next few weeks, all of which are designed with serious gaming in mind. However, for those of you who are more into the retro gaming end of things, whether it be playing cool retro games or just checking out merchandise from back in the day, there is a controller that we've been keeping an eye on since we last reported on it back in February 2012. Well after the long wait the iCade 8-bitty controller is finally available for purchase.

There have been rumors as to what companies would be making these upcoming Nexus devices with names like Sony and LG be thrown around.

There are a couple of new mobile gaming controllers gearing up to hit store shelves real soon that we are eager to get our grubby little hands on to try out and play games with. There is the SteelSeries Free wireless game controller, previously known as the SteelSeries ION, which is now available as of October 2nd, 2012 and then there is the rather interesting MOGA controller. Slated to ht store shelves this month, PowerA have announced today that the MOGA controller has some serious retail backing and will be available in some rather big name stores.
Interesting news today coming from Texas Instruments as they have announced that they will be officially backing out of the mobile devices industry to focus on a more broader range of products such as automobiles and other technology that uses embedded chip systems. This is due to the fact that right now, for Texas Instruments, the mobile industry isn't as stable and profitable as they had hoped it would be.
As with all things technology based, we tend to see sizes get smaller and smaller as technology advances. This holds true for cellphones that, at one point, were bigger than a brick but are now nice little smartphones that fit in our pocket. Even the upcoming Android powered OUYA game console is the size of a Rubik's Cube. Now game controllers are going that way as well, at least when it comes to mobile gaming. Let's meet the iMpulse Controller, a game controller that is the size of a keyring.
Way back in the beginning of this year during CES 2012 we reported on SteelSeries who were planning on getting into the mobile gaming market with a new game controller called the ION. After we reported on this new portable controller, that can easily fit in your pocket, everything went quiet about when it would start hitting store shelves. Now, we can finally give you an update and the controller's new name, the SteelSeries Free Wireless Controller.
You may or may not remember the original iControlPad game controller which, originally, was designed for iOS devices before branching out and becoming available to Android devices as well. While the idea was great, there was a bit of an issue in terms of design since it used clasps to help attach itself to whatever phone you are using. Considering the huge range of device sizes Android has, you can see how this could be a problem. Well the iControlPad 2 looks to fix this by being completely bluetooth enabled minus the clasps.
A new Kickstarter campaign has been launched for a new product that was inevitably heading our way at some point, especially after the success of the OUYA Android-powered game console. This new product, called the MG, is being developed by PlayMG and is being touted as the first dedicated handheld gaming device powered by Android.
