With Black Friday looming right around the corner many find themselves caught up in making their lists, and checkin’ them twice – striving to find the most innovative gifts this season. And, when it comes to the techies on your list it can become quite a challenge to choose between the multitude of hot new gadgets hitting store shelves.
But one thing every tech-lover can appreciate is the gift of protection and stability.
For avid tablet users, the ability to go hands-free poses its own set of risks, where do you place your iPad? How can you ensure its stable and secure?
Below we’ve gathered what we consider to be some of the latest and greatest iPad stands and holders, worthy of gift-giving this holiday season:
SANUS iPad Mount – SANUS actually offers a number of diverse iPad mount accessories, giving you multiple options for placing your iPad up and out of the way while keeping it protected, yet accessible. Whether you choose to attach your iPad to the wall or under a cabinet, each mount comes with a specially engineered case, making it easy to take your iPad on the go.
Our current favorite is the SANUS VTM5 iPad mount, which makes it easy for you to mount your iPad to a wall or on a flat surface underneath a cabinet. By mounting your iPad up high, and out of harm’s way, you are protecting it from potential hazards, such as heavy books being placed on it or spilt water. The VMT5’s case easily attaches to the mount arm’s pivoting connector, which provides 360 degrees of fluid rotation, so you can effortlessly change the view of your iPad. Designed to work with the Apple® Smart Cover®, this mount is compatible with both the iPad 2 and iPad (3rd generation).
Quirky Cradle iPad Lap Desk – The Quirky Cradle iPad Lap Desk literally puts a twist on iPad protection. Do you adore your iPad but hate that you can’t comfortably use it while lounging on your couch or lying in bed? Problem solved. The Quirky Cradle is a portable, lightweight lap desk for your Apple iPad, complete with an integrated circular plate, made from matte, soft-touch plastic, that allows you to rotate your iPad between portrait and landscape views.
Elago Design P2 – If you’re looking for something a bit more simple and sleek Elago Design offers something more minimalist in design. Available in silver or black and made from aluminum, the slightly angled P2 has a hole in the back for cable management, making it a great desktop option.
