Ah. Good point. I usually use mine for emulators (Mupen64Plus AE, GBAoid, GENSoid, and SNESoid) with custom button profiles in each emulator.
Phones: Touch (P3050) -> Milestone -> Xperia X10 -> Xperia Ray (ST18a) -> Desire HD -> Galaxy Nexus -> Xperia Ray (same one)
Tablet: Galaxy Note 10.1 (GT-N8010)

Various tweaks and programs found on XDA-Developers forums and elsewhere.

Thank you to all the developers who create the tools and programs that help many of us enlighten ourselves and become experts.

I'm a bit confused. Do you need a Cable to pair the PS 3 Controller to a android unit ? Or does it work "out of the box" with the sixaxis app + root ?

You do need a USB -> Mini-USB cable to pair the PS3 controller to the SGN 10.1. I use such a cable to connect the controller to my computer. I then execute this command in the terminal in Arch Linux:
Code:
sixpair <mac address shown by SixAxis Controller>
There is also the pairing application for Windows.
