iControlPad iPhone/Touch gamepad slips into production

Sure – for all I know, it may be a while before we see a whole lot of support for the iControlPad gamepad making its way into various applications (besides the emulators, many of which already support it). And, yes, Apple might never, ever acknowledge its existence in any official manner. All that said, man do I want one.

The iControlPad has been a work in progress for a few months now, and it’s going into production at long last. ZodTTD got a shot of one of the final pre-production models, and it’s definitely a gigantasaurus step-up from the prototypes of yesteryear. While there’s still no ETA or pricing info available, we do know that the final model will be shipping in black, rather than the white shown above.
