Kool Tools: iOmini
If you want what may be the world's sturdiest stand for your iPhone or iPad mini, the iOmini (http://tinyurl.com/kgjkkl4) will fill the bill. It's an US$90 universal stand for cell phones and small tablets that works with the iPad mini, iPhones, Android phones and tablets, and e-readers.
The stand lifts your phone or tablet up five inches and rotates in any direction for the perfect viewing angle. Crafted out of precision-machined steel, the iOmini relies on the iOmounts system. You attach a razor-thin steel iOadapt to your phone, tablet or case, then you can magnetically mount your device to the iOmounts core.
It rotates in any direction and is device-universal When you’re ready to go, just give your device a tug and you’re off and running.
The iOmini works best for small tablets and e-readers, like the iPad mini and smartphones like the iPhone or HTC One. The magnets won’t damage your phone or tablet, and there are no magnets in the iOadapt disc on your device.
iOmounts Skins can protect your tablet from the iOadapt adhesive. The iOmini is available in a stainless steel finish and powdercoated black or white. It ships with two iOadapts for use with more than one cell phone or small tablet. If you need a stand or mount for a full-size tablet (like the iPad), check out the iOstand, a larger version of the iOmini.
