Logitech’s iPhone gamepad will reportedly be called Powershell

Earlier this month, we saw the first press render of Logitech’s gamepad for iPhone surface online. Now, serial leakster @evleaks has revealed that this forthcoming gamepad will be called the ‘Powershell.’

This claim was backed by a trademark filing on USPTO, which describes Logitech’s device as ‘an integrated game control device and battery pack for use with computers and digital electronic devices.’ The trademark was filed back in September this year. As we had reported before, the Powershell gamepad is a case that envelops around the iPhone and adds a physical D-pad, four control buttons and shoulder buttons.

With Logitech having used the name ‘Powershell’, wonder what Microsoft feels about it. Windows PowerShell, for those who aren’t familiar, is Microsoft’s task automation and configuration management framework. But since Microsoft hadn’t filed a trademark, Logitech has the right to use the name.
