Spotted these in local B&M branch earlier on today. Knock-off iCade?

*edit* http://www.amazon.co.uk/Atari-Arcade-Duo-Powered-iPad/dp/B006CDP0OU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1370188653&sr=8-1&keywords=atari+arcade+duo - £59.99 from Amazon, but another dealer doing them for £21.99

Although this review - http://reviews.cnet.com/home-entertainment/atari-arcade-duo-powered/4505-6449_7-35022508.html ] - seems to not rate them but suppose you're only wasting £17 instead of the original RRP.

Several sites to choose from:
a) Word Toolbox Add-In - for any power Word user
b) My old hacking stuff of yore
c) Preserving old photographic slides found at car boots!

Shame it isn't bluetooth so it could be used with Android tablets.

I might be wrong but i think there's limited support even on the iPad apps. Predominately it's for use with Atari's own 99 in one games pack which is actually rather cool as the Atari 2600 & Arcade classics  have been modded for touchscreen and shock/horror, they actually did a good job of it. I'm pretty sure you can't use this with Mame variants  or all the other iCade SDK friendly apps.....but for that price, bit of a bargain for ios owning Atari fans.
