Default Bluetooth Gamepad/Keyboard?

Is there any Bluetooth Gamepads that will work with this phone? And any type of keyboard/dock thing for this phone?

I think the Sony PS3 controller can connect to the phone... Don't hold me to that.

I was trolling around gamestop.com and I found this: Tablet Wireless Bluetooth Controller for Android might work...

Bluez IME with the HID enabler add on lets a Wii remote work with our Sense based roms. PS3 controllers over Bluetooth still do not. If you go to an AOSP rom then pretty much anything works.

You can find a dock for about half the price but after researching the available options I settled on this one because it has a removable insert so that I can use it without removing my case, it has a slot for charging a second battery. Also has video pass through capability so that you can connect a mhl adapter to your tv and charge the phone at the same time.

the pairing process is a bitch, but it definitely works on Midnight with the Anthrax kernels that come with it.

You have to first use the "scan devices" option in Bluez IME and press the button on your wii remote to get them to discover each other. Then you have to input the pin (0000) on the phone to get them to register with each other. You only have to do this once.

Then, each time you want to use the wii remote, you change your input method from your keyboard to the Bluez IME at which point the REAL pairing between the phone and the remote begins and the phone starts trying to connect to the wii remote. Press the sync button on the remote again and the two should pair.
