Newer Technology ( has announced the US$349.99 NuGuard Universal Tablet Rack, a plug-and-play “BYOD”(Bring Your Own Device) storage and charging solution for classroom, office, retail, health care, and other multiple brand tablet computer user environments.

Designed to accommodate nearly any tablet including the Apple iPad, Samsung Galaxy, Google Nexus, and Asus Transformer models, the NuGuard Rack allows tablets even in thick, protective cases to slide into one of eight bays to store and charge. The NuGuard Rack comes with eight pre-installed Apple-certified dock connector cables so iPad users can immediately charge.

Embedded channels on the side of the unit enable changing of the cables as well as protection against cable bending, pinching, or accidental removal and/or tangling. By providing room for popular cases like the Apple Smart Case, as well as impact-resistant “armored” cases like the Gumdrop Drop Tech and Griffin Survivor, the NuGuard Rack can hold tablet PCs up to 10 x 8 x 1.5 inches in size.
