Fold & Go tablet stand and Smartphone Lounger stand review

on Saturday, July 19th, 2014

  There are many types of stands for tablets. Some are a single angle, built for either reading and movies, or for typing and heads-down work.  Others (such as those from Apple and the kickstands on Microsoft’s Surface) mandate that you cannot change the orientation – it’s horizontal (usually), and that cannot be changed. ButRead More…

on Friday, July 26th, 2013

Form or functionality? That’s  question that often confronts us when we are looking for phone and tablet accessories. There are lots of products on the market that perform great but look only so-so.

on Friday, April 12th, 2013

The IPEVO Perch Side Security Stand (shipped in safe but bland cardboard boxes) is a fixed height, adjustable orientation/angle, table/chair-side stand for your iPad (versions 2-4).

LapDawg O-Stand Review

on Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

The LapDawg O-Stand is a strikingly versatile and equally odd-looking stand for a wide range of tablet/reader devices.

Just|Mobile UpStand iPad Stand Review

on Monday, January 3rd, 2011

I recently reviewed JaDu Industries’ Skadoosh, a well made and uniquely engineered, portable aluminum iPad Stand. Just|Mobile has gone in the opposite direction from a complexity of design point of view with their new iPad stand, the UpStand. While just as well engineered and made similarly from finely machined aircraft aluminum, the UpStand is a simpleRead More…
