Arkon sent me some samples of different desk and vehicle stand/mounts and the first one I want to take a look at is the Portable Fold up Stand for the PlayBook. This stand took everything into consideration for ease of use and protection of your BlackBerry PlayBook.
The Portable Fold up Stand for the PlayBook is lightweight, offers adjustment for both portrait or landscape use and offers protection with cushioned pads. The stand also folds up for easy storage in your laptop bag, glove box or desk drawer when not in use.
Another cool thing I should mention that you can swipe the screen, do bezel gestures and access the volume and power buttons seamlessly while it’s on the PlayBook stand. For charging though I would have it in portrait mode cause in landscape mode the USB cord will be taking the weight of the PlayBook.
Details: Arkon’s IPM-TAB1 is an exceedingly travel-friendly tablet computer stand designed for use with nearly all new lightweight tablet computers such as the RIM BlackBerry Playbook and others. A quality user-friendly stand is an essential tablet accessory for enhancing your mobile computing experience.
The desktop stand frees up your hands so you can watch movies, read an eBook or recipe, surf the web, conduct a presentation, view photos, read displayed sheet music, or conduct any other activity that would benefit from a foldable easel type of stand.
