I am a big iPad user. It is my main device for writing. So, when I updated to a new iPad Air, I found myself looking for new accessories to use with it. I was especially looking for a new mobile stand. In my search I happened across the Compass 2 from a company called Twelve South. You may have seen a review here for a clone of the original Compass which got good marks, so I went to the Twelve South webpage to check out the Compass 2. The Compass 2 is a compact folding easel type stand that is designed to be used in two configurations. The easel position gives you a display angle of 59 degrees making it great for movie viewing or web surfing in the vertical or horizontal positions. The typing stand position gives you a display angle of 20 degrees which is perfect for typing. Designed to be a compact on the go stand, the Compass 2 dimensions when closed are as follows; Height 7.1″, Width 1.2″, Depth 0.5″ and Weight 8.2 ounces. The Compass 2 is available on the Twelve South website for $39.99. It comes with a soft travel sleeve for transport and is available in three colors.
