Gaming review: Kyocera K500 Gamepad

As published on
"Although many come with games, cell phones aren't considered to be hard-core gaming devices. Beyond a small display, a cell phone's controls are designed for dialing and not for maneuvering shapes into place while playing Tetris. Yet Kyocera is aiming to change the latter hurdle with the Kyocera K500 Gamepad. The K500--at $30, designed with help from gaming-PC maker Alienware--looks just like a typical game controller, except you snap in your Kyocera Slider Sonic or Slider Remix phone and blast away with the thumb-friendlier buttons. Unfortunately, the sloppy movement pad made us sitting ducks for our virtual enemies, and the odd positioning controls didn't do us any favors. "
