I would like to know a few things about android peripherals:

I currently own a Samsung Galaxy Trend Plus and I'm about to buy a gaming controller for it.
First question:

What's the difference between 2.4 Ghz Wireless Connection and Bluetooth? I mean, can you use a 2.4 Ghz PS3 Controller on Android, or no?
2nd Question:

Is there any possible way of using a WiiMote Plus with this device? I know that Samsung changed the Bluetooth Stack Drivers, but I also saw a guy on YouTube connecting a WiiMote to Samsung Galaxy with no problem!

Like I said in my above post, Samsung replaced the stock andoid Bluetooth drivers in Touchwiz with their drivers!
For this reason the WiiController app and other similar ones do not work on it.
