'Zeemote': A game-changer for phones?

It's like a Wiimote for mobile gaming.


Move over, Wiimote. Now there's the Zeemote.

Games on phones have always been a tricky proposition because of obvious space constraints, both in display and navigation. But Zeetoo hopes to solve at least part of the problem with a 3.7-inch-long, 1.7-ounce wireless joystick, which it says will change the whole experience while still small enough for both hand and pocket.

Slashphone says the company has announced the launch of its much-anticipated "Zeemote JS1," though it remains unclear exactly what that means. The company's site says only that the controller is coming soon and that it's "not yet available for consumers to purchase."

Still, it does look promising. Especially when competing technologies resemble things like Evergreen's latest game-pad mouse.
