The Oona Smartphone Stand – a Sticky Solution

Sick of smartphone stands that are made for a specific phone only (like only an iPhone :) ) ? Sick of smartphone stands that don’t work once you put a cover or a case on to protect your baby?

The Oona is a collaboration by 3 guys out of the Bay Area that consists of a base, a stand and 2 suction cups.  This allows you to use it in a stand configuration (as above), as a suction-mount to mount onto a window or other smooth surface, and even as a tripod attachment. It will work on any phone, with or without case, up to about  225g (9oz) with a smooth back surface (even a Blackberry :)).

Available direct from Oona for $29.95 plus postage.

    Purchased this after viewing it on your site and received it today. It works just like described and the guys give good tips for optimal performance. I am right now using it hold my oqo mini-computer, which is quite a bit heavier than a smart phone. It is small, light-weight and and will be a great addition to my gear bag.

    Thanks for feedback. Stuck in Australia sometimes all I can do is find these neato products (well I normally consider them neato :)) and report them here. If it supported my Lenovo tablet I’d certainly consider shipping one Down Under even just for the desktop stand function.

    It becomes a bit of a balancing act when you use larger devices. I suggest you experiment to find the “sweet spot” for where to attach the suction cup. Then, place one of the 4 provided stick-on circles at that spot so you will know exactly where to attach it every time. Cheers!

    The Oona is currently available to buy in the UK from a website called Junk Skull which sells other gadget/iPhone related accessories. It’s selling at a reasonable price for anyone looking to purchase one :] http://www.junkskull.com/products/the-oona-smartphone-stand

    I got my hands on the Oona recently. There aren’t many places that sell it in the UK that sell it besides these guys. It’s pretty good. I was a little nervous that the suction wouldn’t hold my phone well, but once you use it, you realize that it isn’t really an issue. It actually has a surprisingly strong grip, perhaps even better than some of the other smartphone stands about at the moment.

    My phone now spends it life stuck on the cupboard in my kitchen, displaying recipes that for me to read whilst cooking :]
