Keep your phone above it all with the Touch Base

touch-base-for-smartphonesMost stands are gadget-specific, so you’re often out of luck if you change brands or even models.  You won’t have to worry about an expensive stand becoming obsolete when you upgrade your smartphone with the Touch Base for Smartphones from newPCgadgets.  This stand is a solid, 1 pound, 3.75″ X 2″ tall wedge of acrylic with a silicone ring at the top to keep your phone in place.  You can use your phone horizontally or vertically on the wedge.  It serves as a typing or viewing stand or as just a way to keep your phone from getting lost under papers on your desk.  I wonder if it would also work with tablets, especially some of the smaller, 7″ tablets?

    We have these throughout our office and everyone uses them so they must be popular. I took mine home (don’t tell).

    My Blue Lounge Nest ( is half the price and more versatile as it also lets me stand an iPad or Kindle vertically.

    We tried the Blue Lounge last year but they slide all over the desk.

    These look rather similar to the iPad stands in the Apple stores…
