So you now have yourself a new tablet device, such as an iPad or even one of the new Nexus 7 tablets, so you will need a few accessories to go with it. It’s a sure bet that there will be a greater choice for Apple’s iPad, but it won’t be long before there will be an improved selection of the small Android device. However, there is one suggestion that will be perfect for both tablets, and that’s the new Cube Stand.
The Stand is from Cooler Master is not only perfect for use with the iPad/mini and the Nexus 7, but also all over tablet devices from 7-11 inches. This means that this universal tablet stand will work with all tablets on the market – anything smaller is not considered a tablet anyway.
You’ll notice from a few of the images here and the video review below that it’s fully foldable and has a support beam that’s fully adjustable, which means that you can stand your tablet at an angle of up to 135 degrees. What’s more you can stand your tablet at either portrait or landscape, so ideal no matter what you will be viewing.
At a quick glance you’d assume that this is a third-party accessory for an iMac or MacBook because of the aluminum construction, and while this may not be the case, it certainly adds to the build quality – well you would not want you iPad or Nexus sitting on a cheap plastic stand that might flap around and keep dropping flat now would you?
Because it is made from aluminum we’re sure that some of you will worry that it could cause damage to your tablet, such as scratching them, but you needn’t worry because there is rubber linings added to the stand. This not only helps to prevent against scratches but also stops your tablet from slipping as well.
The Cube Stand from Cooler Master will currently cost €44,95 in Europe and $39.99 in the US. The Cube Stand was meant to be released in November, but as yet cannot locate it on Cooler Master’s European website, but we can tell you that it’s already available on the US website.
A Christmas gift idea – If you know someone who owns an Apple iPad and are stuck as what to get them for Christmas, then might we suggest the iPad ORA case with speakers, which we discussed in detail just last week, It might not be as stable as the Cube Stand when opened up, but it more than makes up for it in other areas.
