Nunchuk-like controller coming to cell phones

Zeemote

Do you find yourself playing games on a cell phone and your chubby fingers are getting in the way? Well, worry no more. The Zeemote is a bluetooth-enabled controller that looks awfully similar to a Wii Nunchuk and promises to take some of the frustration out of mobile gaming.

Featuring an analog joystick and a few buttons, the device has already received validation from the major phone manufacturers and we're likely to see it sometime next year. Future versions of the device are said to be in the works containing accelerometers, making it even more derivative of the Wii accessory.

I've played my share of mobile games and, yeah, trying to play with the keypad is a bit frustrating. You know what's more annoying to me, though? Having a bunch of crap in my pockets. Already burdened with keys, phone, wallet, smokes, lighter, personal lubricant and business cards, now I have to try and cram a controller in there too? The games would have to really take a leap forward to even consider this as an option.
