In May, Logitech announced┬ánice Bluetooth accessories for iPad and today the company outed two new products, one aimed at gamers and the other for users who want their tablet to be more – you know – notebook-like, with real keyboard and stuff. The first, the suction cup joystick, sounds like a great idea, but we have doubts that this thing can sit on iPad’s 9.7-inch display long enough during intense action games. Also bear in mind its lack of textured grip and a seamless surface. Logitech argues the coiled spring provides force feedback that automatically returns the joystick to the center position.

At $20 a pop, who could complain? Engadget got a chance to play a round of Pac-Man using this thingie (video below the fold) and we suspect any game with on-screen sticks should lend itself well to this gaming accessory. The fold-up keyboard, another Bluetooth accessory, connects wirelessly to your iPad and has a built-in stand that props up your iPad in portrait or landscape. The keyboard is full-sized, it charges over USB and automatically turns itself on and off when unfolded/folded. Price? Just $130. Both accessories will hit the U.S. and Europe beginning in September.
