Prizm Stand a great choice for displaying your iOS device


By 'Doctor' Dave Greenbaum

Apple's iOS devices are simple, elegant and just work. However, one flaw of their design is they lack an integrated stand: they simply can't stand up on their own.  

Enter the Prizm Stand (http://www.hubinnovations.com/Products-Prizm_Stand.html), the logical choice for displaying your iOS device. Although these stands are not specifically designed for the iPhone and iPad, I can't imagine a
better pairing of two products.

The stand is comprised of two pieces of aluminum in a variety of attractive colors that provide a stand to hold your tablet or phone. The brushed metal design matches the iPad and iPhone perfectly (but doesn't come in white!). The stand comes together by simply crossing the metal pieces into a scored slot. The lightweight aluminum makes the stand lightweight and portable, and the phone stand actually fits on your key chain.

When devices are  held in the Prizm stand all ports are accessible, including the bottom dock and the device can be held in a portrait or landscape orientation. In addition, I had no problem using the Prizm with a variety of iPhone and iPad cases:  even my thicker "extreme" cases. The cradling is secure and reliable, but, unfortunately is not adjustable; one position is all you get.

The attractive colors frame the iPhone and iPad extremely well and instantly draws the eye. This is the type of stand that impresses people; if you want a conversation piece on your desk or to draw people to your Macworld booth this is the way to go.  I can also see this stand working well for using your iPad as a picture frame. Personally I've used both the tablet and the phone stand for travel; the former works great to prop your iPad at the coffee shop or on the plane to do some hands free reading.

The best feature is the price: US$24.95 for the phone stand and $29.95 for the tablet stand. This price makes it easy to buy the stands in a variety of colors depending upon your mood. My favorite was the green, but it comes in a total of 11 colors.

Pros:  Attractive, simple design that frames and supports your iPhone and iPad

Cons:  Not adjustable
