There are plenty of stands out there designed to prop your iPad at a more pleasant angle for watching movies, etc. There are also plenty of stands that do the same for other competing tablets. But the Satechi R1 stand manages to kill two birds with one stone. This aluminum stand works with the iPad, iPad 2, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Motorola Xoom, BlackBerry Playbook, HTC Flyer – and in general tablets ranging in size from 7 to 10 inches.
The R1 is made of a solid aluminum construction yet it manages to be case friendly. The R1 stand enables you to place your tablet in portrait, landscape or flat-angled orientation, plus it can be used to adjust the height and angle of the tablet, so that you can easily add a bluetooth keyboard to the set-up and you would have a mini iMac ready to go. The stand is also ultra-slim and able to fold up for traveling. The Satechi R1 Stand retails for $49.99.
