When will they develop..

A unit compatible with the iPhone/iTouch that offers more controls?

Any rumors about such a device?

Seems like this would REALLY open up the game development market. Touch controls offer a lot, but it doesn't replace buttons you can feel. Taking controls off the screen also offers more viewing area.

For games like Bejeweled and Flight Control the touch controls fit perfectly. But for sports/action/... games, a controller would offer a lot more.

Yeah this is what I am talking about. I am surprised there isn't more hype and push for such a device to be supported.
