The most popular gadgets leak Twitter account @evleaks has first posted a photo of Logitech’s gaming controller for iPhone on October 1st but didn’t revealed the name. And yesterday on 26th October, it has revealed the name – Powershell for the gaming dock and to add more to the claim, there is a legal filing for trademark and patent at Legalforce is found, which backs the claims and shows that Logitech has applied for the trademark in last month.

According to the Legalforce’s trademark filing, the device is an “integrated game control device and battery pack for use with computers and digital electronic devices.”

The filing not mentioned iPhones anywhere in the filing. However, there would be an issue if Microsoft has the trademark for the term “Powershell” as they already has the product named as Windows Powershell (WikiPedia link here).

After the poor third-quarter financial results with $180 million operating loss, Logitech has decided to sell its Remote Controller division and also told that it will focus on mobile computing such as tablets and smartphones in future. The declining PC market also affected the Logitech’s business as the company was focused on PC peripherals business so far. But in iPhone controller business, Logitech has to face a rival company – MOGA, which is also building a gaming controller for iPhones.
