Twelve South’s excellent Compass Mobile Stand for iPad / iPad 2 now comes in three colors, complete with snazzy color names as well – iPad Silver, Tactical Black, and Candy Apple Red.
The Compass Mobile Stand for iPad is easily the most versatile stand for the iPad that I’ve seen. It’s a folding easel type stand that is amazingly compact and very comfortably portable. It folds down to a very easily pocket-able size and folds out just as easily into two different configurations – one ideally suited for ‘viewing mode’ and one that is just perfect for typing mode.
I’ve got an old-school silver Compass Mobile Stand that I’ve had for nearly a year now, that has been a faithful traveling companion for my iPads. I did a review of the Compass Mobile Stand for iPad last October – here’s part of my sum-up in that post:
If you’re after a do-it-all stand for the iPad, I’ve not seen any that match the Compass Mobile Stand. It is lightweight, super-easy to carry, and ideal for use when you want to do a bit of typing on the iPad while you’re out at a coffee shop or similar.
And now they come in a couple more colors. I may try to grab one of the red or black ones soon and pass down the trusty silver one to my wife, as I’m sure she’ll get good use out of it as well.
The Compass Mobile Stands goes for $39.99 and you can see more details and place an order at the Twelve South page for them here:
