Last month, even this great site, Trulia, held a 'Win an I-pad Mini' contest. By now, including the winner, we all have them - TheÂ Nook, the Kindle, the Notebook. an I-pad standard or mini or two- AKA- The TABLET. We email, read magazines and books, as well as store pictures, documents, and downloaded apps on them. We just cannot be without them! For most of us, these devices have even become our newest and smallest flat screen TV to watch movies, television episodes, and play games on. For me- a Kindle in the kitchen for recipe following/ an I-pad in the livingroom for all else.
(Recipes at dinner time/ All the time kitchen clock for me ABOVE - simply insert the I-pad cover sleeve into the cabinet, under a heavy objectÂ and close the door - making it an under cabinet unit!)
We takeÂ these appendages of ours with us from room to room, from standing, to sitting, to lounging, we hold them tightly as if for dear life, our hands fixated in that holding pattern, while squinting and slouching. So it begs the questionâ€¦ â€˜If it acts like a television of sorts, wouldnâ€™t you want to further make it look like one?â€ After all, you wouldnâ€™t hold a regular television in your hands while watching it, now would you?
Like everything else, when I am looking for something â€“ I make it my mission to find it! And find it, I do! To this searchâ€¦..a multitude of solutions from how to cleverly turn ourÂ devices into under cabinet units, to framing and or wall installation, to floor stands, furniture clamps, extending wall mounts, andÂ portable desks.
www.theipadframe.comÂ BELOW at $114.95 for mini- standard size, allows you to frame, place on desk, hang on wall, watch!
Ranging from $0. (my under the cabinet idea) to $200.+ Â the many available options will allow you to further enjoy your tablet in ways you have only imagined. You can read, watch movies or videos, tweet, or use your apps all hands-free in nearly every situation and room. Most measure 11" long x 23" wide x 37" high.
(This stand, ABOVE, allows you to fold it up, pack it up and carry even in a tripod case for travel- or to take on a Listing Presentation complete with Comps and testimonials!)
(My own $39.95 stand BELOW from www.chargercity.com allows me anything from movie viewing, a backgammon game or two, Â and simultaneous email receiving and answering in the comfort of my livingroom or whichever room I move it to.Â Pop in your earphones, or charger while it stands.Â Since I use my I-pad mini as my portable 'lap-top', I found a removable-detachable wireless bluetooth ABS keyboard/case from www.qq-tech.com for only $31.88, which allows me to use the keyboard when emailing and pausing a movie. I switch the standÂ from holding my I-pad to holding my Kindle when there's a great e-book to be read....Â )
(BELOW: for those of you who are so attached to your mobile devices, and even take them to bed with you.... a clamp-on stand or wall mount for PM or awake to breakfast with tray in the AM bedside view.)
Whichever your preference- slouch, squint,Â and searchÂ no more!
Work, Watch, Relax, all at the same time. Enjoy!
