    I know you can with Sixaxis (in the Play store).

    My main question is one that I've not found a definite answer for yet... can a PS3 controller be paired to more than just one device ? ie; if I paired it to my N7 via Sixaxis, can I also use it for my PS3 ? Or do I need to keep pairing it to each device I want to use it on each time ?

    I would take a guess and say you have to pair every time you switch device. the PS3 controller dont support multiple device at a time.
    I have 2 PS3 and 2 controller. when i have to use those 2 controller with one PS3 i have to pair it and have to do the reverse when i use it with other ps3.

    Unfortunately, you have to re-pair to PS3 when done. I have two controllers so just dedicated one for my tablet until needing to play a two player game.

    Do you have to be rooted to use a controller with the 7?

    If you want to connect a PS3 controller with Bluetooth then you need to be rooted, but for a USB connection you don't.
