    With the access to the dock connector, who do you think will make the first game pad with joysticks and buttons? Also, who will develop games for it. It seems like if someone comes out with one good controller and gets developers on board to develop games for it, they could corner the market...

    I can't wait to see what develops...

    A game pad cradle with a bigger battery would be good for long gaming sessions :)

    The problem with the physical keyboard is that Apple never released the drivers & APIs for the iPhone/iPod Touch keyboard. So, while it may be possible (and likely) that a physical keyboard will come out for an existing app, it will not work system-wide.

    Yah they could get it working in there app but probably not system wide. I'd love to see the ability to bluetooth pair with an apple keyboard.

    I would real rather not have the iPhone turn into the next PSP or DS. Why can't people be content with simple games we have now?
