With the arrival of the iPhone OS 3.0 it is now possible to create external accessories for the iPhone that can be controlled via bluetooth. The GameBone Pro (the shape of a dog bone) is the first bluetooth gamescontroller for the iPhone 3GS, created by the Australian iPhone-softwaredeveloper 22moo. The GameBone Pro can be used wirelessly via bluetooth of with a cable via the iPhone dock-connector.
Inside is a rechargeable 2000mAh Lithium-Ion-battery to make it possible to use it without cables. The new gamescontroller has a 3,5 mm headphone connection and an integrated microphone and speakers. You also get a iPhone holder so that you can game horizontally as well as vertically.
It is somewhat remarkable that the creators of the GameBone Pro ask the audience for suggestions for the price of this gamescontroller. Hopefully the price is worth the buy and there will be a lot of games to play with. The GameBone Pro exists only on paper for now but the planned launch date is somewhere halfway into september 2009. iPhone developers can already begin creating apps with the GameBone Pro SDK.
