iFans is giving away BOTH the AviiQ Portable Quick Stand and the previously reviewed AviiQ Portable Laptop Stand. To enter, simply post a comment on this review! You must be a US or Canadian resident. Complete giveaway rules can be found after the break.
Last month, I took an in-depth look at AviiQ‘s CES award-winning Portable Laptop Stand for laptops in the 13″ to 17″ range. Its unique folding design and sleek aluminum appearance gave it a very favorable review. Its $59.99† price tag, however, wasn’t so great.
Then, last week, AviiQ released the less expensive and similar looking Portable Quick Stand for laptops up to 17″ in size. I’ve got my hands on these stands and will be assessing whether or not it has the same award-winning characteristics as its more expensive counterpart!
A complete listing of all iFans accessory reviews can be found in the archives. Review requests for all Apple-related products may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Stump stand caught my attention during its showcase at Macworld 2011, and we’ve got our hands on four of them to show you, too. The Stump stand can be used with the iPad, iPad 2, Kindle, Nook, or any device that has a thickness of less than ½ an inch. It can also be used with smaller devices like the iPhone or iPod touch. It is versatile with three different viewing angles and is available in a variety of different colors. You can also create your own custom Stump stand.
The iChair team, based out of Dallas, Texas, brings a feel-good story to the table. Believe it or not, the folks behind this accessory quit their jobs last year, including their steady paychecks, to pursue research and development towards making the perfect stand for iPad. Their motivation behind this idea was the bulkiness or unpractical nature of all other iPad stands that they had came across. As any entrepreneur will tell you, this involved risking nearly everything.
In the months to follow, the iChair team spent time in China researching manufacturers. Development of the iChair began soon after, and their dream product was finally released for iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 3G/3GS, and iPod touch in August of 2010. We’ve got our hands on the iChair for iPad, and will be assessing whether or not it was worth it for the iChair folks to quit their day jobs.
