Default WTB wireless bluetooth controller for playing emulated SNES games on Android table

Anyone got any recommendations. Not looking for something particularly expensive or elaborate. Only for SNES titles, so anything like an original SNES controller (or even a littel smaller) would be fine.

I've been told Wii remotes can work if you're rooted. No idea how hard it is to do though as I decided there's no point for a non Nvidia device.

This is nice and cheap, but it's constantly out of stock:
MSI BGP100 Bluetooth Gamepad (1*AAA Battery Included) - Free Shipping - DealExtreme

This looks good but it's $50:
Ingenu - Bluetooth Gamepad for Android, Android Game Reviews, Your Android Source!

Wii remotes work on iPhones for snes emulators. I can't see why they won't work under android.

Really want the Ingenu one (just because I will be mostly playing SNES games and I know I like the ergonomics of that one already) but I haven't got the wife approval factor yet.

Apparently if I can just play on the big screen that should be good enough for me and I don't need to spend $50 on it.
