    I like the idea. Rs5000 will look like a big deal for normal phone users. But it wouldn't be a problem for those high end users with larger displays and good hardware. Games can be tweaked to enable controller option, a much better alternative to the Sony PSP. Android being a larger platform for games, this is a better scope for developers as well to come up with cooler games to play with this controller. I can already see the games like Assassins Creed and Need for Speed (some small examples) being a hit with it if the 'game' is rightly priced on the Google Play Store! Also a gaming controller would mean better wrestling/fighting games in future.'!

    P.S.: Would you rather go ahead and buy a PSP which is more 'portable' and funtertaining than a Gamer's PC/X-Box/PlayStation which you would use sparingly if you're someone with a hectic work-life schedule? - guess that accounts for a debate!
