Samsung has launched a games console adaptor for use with its Galaxy smartphones.
The company said that the Smartphone GamePad instantly transforms the user's Galaxy smartphone or tablet into a portable gaming console or even a home console. The GamePad is attachable to mobile devices ranging from 4-inches to 6.3-inches and can also connect Galaxy devices to a television.
GamePad connects with smartphones and tablets through Bluetooth pairing. The most convenient features optimized for Samsung Galaxy devices running Android 4.3 such as Galaxy Note 3, S4, Note II, and S III enable connectivity with GamePad via NFC tag and quicker access to games via the "PLAY" button.
With just a tap of the "PLAY" button, users can access the Mobile Console app, Samsung's new integrated game launching app that opens in conjunction with GamePad to allow users to browse and purchase game pad supported games.
The GamePad is is currently available in select European markets and will be available in additional regions in the coming weeks.
