iControlPad Now Available for Order, Shipping Next Week

What seems to be the first d-pad controller for the iPhone, iControlPad is now available for order on their website and will start shipping next week.

After being revealed some time two years ago, it switched designs from being controlled through the dock connector to being controlled through Bluetooth.  The hardware design has also received a significant makeover from the original prototype’s, and it seems like the final product is made up of two parts: the controller itself alongside some sides that are used to secure your device.

Shipping will begin around February 16th, and units will be shipping in batches of 1,000 until the first 3,000 units are produced.

The iControlPad as a whole will cost $74.99, with the sides alone costing $14.99 and the controller $59.99.  It is compatible with the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, the original iPhone, iPod touch (may need some adjusting), and other mobile devices.  Also note that the iControlPad will not work with all games and must be supported by the games themselves for the hardware to work.

You can go on their website and begin ordering now.

About Daniel

I have been an iPhone game addict ever since the NES emulator came out on the 1.1.4 iPhone 2G. After 2.0 and the App Store came out, my iPhone homescreen has never been the same. Other than writing reviews for App Store games, I play soccer/football, American football, volleyball, and golf. I love going to the beach and fishing on the pier. Some games not available on iPhone/iPod Touch that I truly love are the Call of Duty series, Guitar Hero III, Madden NFL 09, and PGR: Gotham Racing.
