ZAGG’s iFrogz brand announced that it would unveil a new Caliber Advantage mobile gaming controller at CES 2013 in Las Vegas today.
The controller fits the iPhone or iPod touch and acts as analog game controller that attaches to the mobile device:
The Caliber Advantage controls the action via the device’s Bluetooth® connection, providing the lightning-fast response needed for today’s mobile gaming. The dual slide-out analog controls of the gaming handset feature tactile, responsive keys, for a tight and accurate gaming experience. The Caliber Advantage incorporates the accelerometer features of the iPhone while adding all of the benefits of a traditional gaming controller.
The iFrogz Caliber Advantage gaming handset will launch in the first half of 2013 for $69.99 at iFrogz.com and through select retail partners. Get more details in the full press release.
