Review: Kantek Folding Tablet Stand
Shoplet sent me a Kantek folding tablet stand to have a look at. It is fun to get a product to review that is one you are going to get a lot of use out of. This stand will hold a 7" - 10" tablet and something else, but more about that later. It rotates 360 degrees. It can be used with the tablet in portrait or landscape mode. It also folds for convenient storage. You can find this at on Shoplet's website for considerably less at $19.99 than I found it anywhere else on the web, including my usual go-to Amazon.
Our house has access to three different tablets so trying out the stand wasn't difficult. My brother does a lot of flight sims and racing programs on our computer. In addition to the program on the computer he has apps he uses to supplement the program. While the tablet case has a way to prop it open, the angle makes the tablet hard to see. So he took our Asus tablet and put it on our desk using the stand. It was a little bulky fit for the stand with the case on, but it works. The one problem is the rotating stand - which is basically good. The issue is there is no way to lock the stand so if you bump it or reach for the tablet it shifts position. A lock on the rotation would be wonderful.
Check out the Shoplet links and this really cool product. It is well worth the money if you have a tablet you use on a table or desk (or a gypsy designing machine).
