Fructel’s Gametel Bluetooth Controller is finally heading to the Philippines. The Gametel Bluetooth controller transforms smartphones and tablets into a portable gaming console.

Gametel’s familiar console-style D-pad, quartet of buttons and two shoulder triggers provide responsive physical gameplay when compared to touchscreen controls, opening up an unobstructed viewing area.

Gametel is compatible with Android smartphones and tablets running Android 2.1.1 Eclair or later. Apple iPads running iOS 3.2 or later and iPhones supporting iOS 4.0 or later. Gametel connects to the device via Bluetooth, automatically pairing with the device every time it powers on.

The controller’s built-in adjustable spring-loaded clamp allows secure docking of any Android handset (including the Samsung Galaxy S3) or iPhone while sturdy, soft rubber clasps protect handsets from being scratched or damaged. A nine-hour battery life provides more than enough playing time for long journeys and weekly commutes to and from work.

I was first hesitant to mash down the Gametel controller because of its build quality, I feel that it is not that sturdy and the buttons are a bit small for my hands, hopefully they can improve this one in the future, though it gives comfort when you just want to use the real controller rather than a virtual controller just like console controllers ­čÖé

The next version of Gametel controller or the Gametel 2 will be have a similar form of the PS3 controller , it will have an 6 axis function, same clamp and it will be manufactured in one of the companies/factories in the Mactan Economic Processing Zone or MEPZ in Cebu.

Though number of games are still limited, it is still a good accessory, hopefully could be cheaper (because of build quality), nevertheless a casual/hardcore gamer will still have fun using this controller.

The Gametel Bluetooth controller is now available at RC Goldlines stores in Cebu City at a retail price of only Php 2,490
