PhoneJoy Solutions Limited is a relatively young technology company based in Hong Kong. We specialize in designung game controllers for smartphones and tablets. Most of our operations are conducted in Hong Kong, whereas some processes are done in partnership with local partners in South China and Hong Kong.
How it all started…
After not finding any decent game controller for our Android tablets in early 2011 we decided to make our own. We first did so by using the plastic housing of USB Playstation look-a-like controllers that we then filled with the PCB and Bluetooth module we designed. In short, the PhoneJoy was born. It certainly was not the most innovative invention, but it was a start for bringing something to fellow end-users that other companies had failed to do so. Since then, we are happy to bring something to fellow end-users that other companies had failed to do so. Plus, we keep on improving and developing our products and services continuously to create the perfect PhoneJoy experience for you.
We are tired of casual gaming on smartphones. Modern phones are capable of much greater than Angry Birds. Yet, unfortunately the gaming market still lacks vastly behind the possibilities of modern tablet and smartphone hardware. However, slowly but surely we are seeing more and more serious games emerging on the horizon. Our vision is that smartphone and tablet gaming will eventually replace standalone gaming devices such as the PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS. With touch controls, however we do not believe this will possible.
As a hardware company, we want to enable gamers to get the best gaming experience possible. Of course we realize that the current PhoneJoy generation is not mobile enough and therefore we are working on a game controller (“PhoneJoy Portable”) that will come with great ergonomics and gameplay at a much smaller size as well as a docking function for smartphones of all sizes. If you want us to inform you about the release of the new PhoneJoy Portable you should join the PhoneJoy Newsflash mailing list on your right!
