• JoyPod - FAKE. Belkin Speaks Up.

    The JoyPod, rumored to be the first venture into iPhone game pads by a major player in the accessory industry (Belkin), turns out to be a fake. The original article came from a site called TouchArcade, and it looks like they've taken us all for a late April Fools. After sleuthing just a tad, we received this email from Belkin:

    Hi Cody,

    Thanks for the email! The "JoyPod" is as much of a surprise to you as it is to us! The "JoyPod" is not a Belkin product, but simply a false rumor. We have no plans to release such a product.

    iControlPad, however, first mentioned back in May, is nearing completion, and we've heard it works great. I know ZodTTD is supporting it fully with his apps, and hopefully Jonathan Zdziarski will support it with his NES.app as well. It will be interesting to see how a hardware device aimed purely at jailbroken phones will do... I'll be ordering one.
