    Hello, first post/thread here. I've followed Android Central since last november when my wife got a HTC Hero and love the site. I'm making my own leap into the great Android world with the Epic 4G and am glad to truly be a part of the community.

    I am an emulator nut and what sold me on the Epic was the physical keyboard.

    Some of you might have heard of the game gripper. It is a snap on gamepad that fits over a phones' physical keyboard. It basically turns your keyboard into a nes/snes/genesis/whatever retro controller.

    Right now it is available for the droid, devour, and backflip. The site has a request form to(you guessed it), request the device be made for a certain phone.

    I'm reaching out to fellow soon-to-be Epic 4G owners to fill out a request form so I and everyone else, but mainly me, can own one.

    The link to the request form is game-gripper: Request form

    P.S. I chose the color to be black with grey buttons

    Wow, that thing would be SWEET. Yet another reason keypads rock. FWIW I voted for gray with red buttons. I want it to remind me of my NES days

    This is a really great option for gaming. I hope they also get the blutooth WII remotes working for more android phones soon.

    As the Epic is getting closer and closer to release, I'm hoping more people will check out this forum and maybe this thread.

    Please fill out a request even if you dont plan on buying one. ;0)

    I'll fill it out- and it is cheaper... but I still like this idea instead (modular design will allow for phones other than iphone.)iControlPad - Add real gaming controls to your iPhone!

    lol, I would rather just carry my PSP with me if I was going to carry that thing.

    Whats nice about the Game Gripper is that you could easily put it in your other pocket and forget about it.

    I just registered to say Thank you for posting this! I just picked up the epic yesterday and was wondering if this controller had been made for us yet. Kick google search brought me here. I've signed the request form. Let's cross our fingers.
