Frequent travelers who use their tablets as their primary entertainment tool of choice will realize one thing – without a stand, watching full length movies does get pretty painful and tiring for the hand and arm after a while, leading to the manufacturing of various tablet stands in the past. Satechi joins the fray with the R1 stand, where this versatile arm hinge will cater for 7″ to 10″ tablets, including the iPad and iPad 2, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Motorola Xoom, BlackBerry Playbook, and HTC Flyer among others. Even better is the fact that you can use the Satechi R1 without having to remove the protective case of your tablet beforehand – it offers a solid aluminum construction as well as rubber grips in order to safely secure the tablet in its place.
You can opt to place the tablet in portrait, landscape or flat-angled orientation, and you can also adjust the height and angle of the tablet so that it will be in the optimal position to function with a Bluetooth keyboard, whether you are watching movies, doing some video conferencing or getting your FaceTime gig going on. All this for just $49.99, seems pretty reasonable, doesn’t it?
