The Zeemote JS1 Bluetooth mobile game controller is easily one of Pocket Gamer’s favourite peripherals, as it does away with the platform’s biggest bugbear: the keypad.
T-Mobile has grabbed up the exclusive rights to the Zeemote, and will be delivering it as part of a package with the Sony Ericsson W705 Walkman phone with Fast & Furious pre-installed.
“Sony Ericsson prides itself on bringing intuitive and entertaining technologies to its consumers,” says Sony Ericsson UK MD, Dave Hilton. “We are delighted to be giving them the opportunity to experience the award winning Zeemote JS1 Bluetooth Mobile Gaming Controller in combination with our W705 state-of-the-art handset.”
We also gleaned a lot of enjoyment from the Fast & Furious movie tie-in, while the Walkman handset also comes with demos of five other Zeemote compatible games to give your thumb a bit of extra exercise: Powerboat Challenge, Rally Master Pro, Galaxy on Fire, Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X and Prince of Persia.
Hopefully the Zeemote won’t be tied up in exclusivity contracts for too long, as our exclusive unboxing of the product last August still has us very excited at the prospect of a proper mobile game controller bringing Java back to life.
