Ion iCade MobileThere’s a lot of great games for the iPhone, but not all of them work well with touchscreen controls. To help with that problem Ion has the iCade Mobile.

The iCade Mobile is a game controller for the iPhone or iPod touch that adds a directional pad, four face buttons and two shoulder buttons. The controller has extra grips behind both sides, with the iPhone in the middle in either landscape or portrait mode. It’ll work for the same games that the iCad works for, though obviously they’ll be the iPhone versions instead.

The device felt a bit plasticky, but that’s to be expect of almost any iPhone game controller. It’ll be available in sometime this year for $79.99.
