They're working on a model that will work with the 3G and the 3GS. &nbsp;This isn't shipping yet; it's just a concept. &nbsp;Personally, I don't really see a need for a device like this. &nbsp;I happen to like the gaming experience iOS provides natively. &nbsp;If I want to use a device with buttons, I'll just grab my PSP. &nbsp;Is there anybody who wants this, and if so, why? &nbsp;Let us know in the comments. &nbsp;</p>
