XFLEX, The All In One Tablet And Phone Stand

XFLEX is one really useful piece of hardware that has been long overdue in our world of tablets and smartphones. It can be used to stand virtually any tablet or smartphone. It has two detachable pieces that can fit in a purse or backpack and can be used in a million and one places.

The XFLEX is made up of two pieces, one being a flexible arm and the other being a weighted base made of aircraft aluminum. There is one connection hole on each side of the base that allows maximum accessibility where the arms can attach via magnets. For as simple as the device is, it is truly the real deal in all-in-one accessories. Use it on any flat surface, wedge it between your couch cushions or fit it in the back seat pocket of a car for easy video viewing. 

Why get other single purpose products that only work for specific devices (mostly iOS ones) when you get a high quality, US made all-in-one device. XFLEX currently has a Kickstarter page up to raise enough funds so they can lower production costs and keep it manufactured in the US. As of writing this, they have hit half of their $20,000 goal. You can get it for $40 off on their Kickstarter page or order it immediately on their website.

Prizm Aluminum Stand Grasps Your iPad, Tablets, Smartphones & Beyond

Hub Innovations has released a few stand offerings at CES 2012, but only one of them has caught our attention. It's called the Prizm. A stand that is a sleek architectural masterpiece that might remind your of the movie District 9 even. It's made from aluminum alloys and precious metals like 14k gold. Comprised of two identical parts, no thicker than a pencil, this stand slides together and creates what Hub Innovations calls the most versatile stand on the market. We can agree to disagree on that statement. Available in two sizes, the Prizm is a portable universal stand capable of holding anything from iPads and tablets, books and notepads to smartphones and MP3 players.

This low-profile stand comes in several anodized colors as well as premium metals like 14k gold, antique brass, antique copper, antique nickel and carbon fiber. It doesn't look like those sharp metal prongs have any form of padding from where we're standing and Hub Innovations has noting to say regarding that. The Prizm stand ranges in price from $24.95 to $34.95 and beyond.

ColorWare Wedge Tablet Stand Looks Incredible

Although you may know ColorWare for its custom paint job service that gets your gadgets in the right color for your taste and charging you accordingly, the Wedge looks to be the companies first ever standalone product that may actually serve a purpose. ColorWare's $250 Grip handle case for the iPad was the first product ColorWare has introduced, however it fell short from our expectations. Keeping up with the companies tradition, the Wedge is made out of a solid slab of aluminum making it last way beyond the life of your tablet. The Wedge is uniquely designed to fit the iPad, iPad 2 and most other tablets and e-readers but might look best with an iPad 2 in the front seat don't you think?

The Wedge enables the user to place a tablet in both landscape and portrait viewing orientations at four different viewing degrees - 40, 60, 70 and 80 degree angles that are also depicted at the top of the Wedge. Each of the four stand slits are lined with a soft Ultrasuede material and the bottom surface of the Wedge has been fitted with a non-slip rubber surface. ColorWare's Wedge won't come cheap at $200, but at least you've got the power of fully customizing it from head to toe and picking from a slew of color options including soft-touch and glossy finishes, Ultrasuede lining colors for each side without increasing the price. We really like the Wedge stand so far, it looks like it belongs inside a Lamborghini Reventon.
