Hi everyone,

Just wondering if people were keen on the Phonejoy? Its a bluetooth gamepad for Android. Up until now its been produced in very short quantities, but it looks as if production will be increasing in the near-ish future.

I might be able to secure a reasonable line on stock, but I need to know if there is interest, and what kind of price point people see as being reasonable for these?

If you don't know what a Phonejoy looks like/does, check this video from about the 2:45 mark:

How much are they likely to be?

About $60 I reckon, dual stick version. Worth it?

I think that's pretty reasonable. Does MHL charge the phone? Be pretty cool to use phones as portable gaming consoles you can plug into a TV.

You have to plug a charger into the MHL adapter in order for it to work, it charges the phone when connected up (although the charge still trickles down, even while charging if you're doing intensive stuff on the phone like HD video and HQ gaming, I think I'll be using my Mugen extended battery for MHL sessions when it arrives for review).
