Connect PS3 Controller to Android phone or Tablet

Playing games on Android phones and tablets are fun. A time has come where Tablets can beat Consoles when it comes to Gaming. I remember the time when the biggest games on PC were GTA 3 and Max Payne 2. Rockstar Games has done a wonderful job in releasing those games to mobile platforms like Android and iOS. But one of the main reasons that keeps the mobile platform one step behind gaming consoles is the poor game controls. One can't replace a keyboard or a gaming controller with a touch screen! Using touch screen for gaming is not not ergonomic while playing for hours because you need the whole tablet or phone in hand to play the game. Also it can't provide vibration feedback, precision, comfort etc. As of now we can't use a full PC keyboard and Mouse on Android phones or tablets but some like the Asus Transformer has an optional keyboard but, we can use the PS3 Sixaxis Controller to Android.
