    Normally I'd suggest a Moga or another Android-intended gamepad with a dock that holds your device comfortably in place, however if you're going bigger than what a Moga could hold, then the best gamepad for Android is a Dualshock 3. They're arguably the best designed gamepads of the last 10 years. they're solid built, easy to acquire, and cheap. Theres no better performance to money ratio than a $25 Dualshock 3.

    Doesnt make sense. The controller must hold the tablet or its useless.

    Doesn't make much sense to have an attachable controller for a tablet in the first place. But as it stands, there are no third party attachable controller for tablets. The only ones that exist include the tablet, like the wikipad, or razer nonsense. So something like this is your best solution:

    Or use a stand to hold the tablet while you use a controller.

    Other than that, wikipad is releasing its gamevice controller but it's only planned for ipad minis, at least for now for sure.

    That sounds like your problem for choosing tablet over phone. If you want your device held in place, then you gotta go 6 inches or smaller. And you'll just have to get creative if you want to mount a tablet on a controller.
