Bringing the console experience to Android tablets, Nyko’s PlayPad is a travel-sized wireless Bluetooth controller designed to work with a long list of the most popular Android game titles.
Designed in conjunction with Nvidia, the PlayPad is compatible with numerous high-end mobile games optimized for Tegra-powered devices. For expanded compatibility, the PlayPad works with Nyko’s free Android app, Playground, to provide backward compatibility for the PlayPad with legacy tablet titles, including those that utilize keyboard mapping and mouse support.
It features a dual analog stick, Dpad, four face buttons, and left and right dual shoulder/trigger buttons.
Playground provides profile management for customized control schemes, as well as preset profiles for more than 100 top-selling game titles.
The PlayPad Pro works with any Android 3.0 device or higher with Bluetooth. It includes a tablet stand and carrying case.
