With more and more people looking at buying Tablets, be it an Apple iPad 2 , Motorola Xoom or even the Samsung Galaxy 10.1 (yes you can get them in Australia now…) as their main internet/ media device. So can Tablets be as good or even better than a Notebook? I believe so and you can make it even easier with Cygnett’s new Platform, this simple yet elegant designed stand could make the staunch supporter of the Notebook think twice about possibly moving to the Tablet side.

I received my review unit of the Platform and have been using it over the Christmas / New Year break and must say the Platform is great, currently have it beside my bed and charge my iPad 2 on it and even use it with Nightstand app as a clock.

Universal Stand
Lightweight and elegant in its simplistic design, the Platform streamlines your desktop and maximises your tablet experience.
Providing hands-free access to your tablet in portrait or landscape view, it is ideal for use at the home or office. Rubber-covered brackets and a non-slip rubber cradle hold your tablet securely, while the rubber-slip mat at the base guarantees firm grip on most surfaces.

The iPad 2 fits perfectly on to the stand, even with the Otterbox Defender case, in fact I think it fitted better and even gave it more grip on  the stand, just to show how stable the stand is the above pictures were taken on my bed and as you can see still stands up straight with no noticeable lean.

Very functional in portrait or landscape it still looks great and very stable.

Looks pretty good with Nightstand app, tried this at night with the screen turned down.

Charging

I find that since that I have had the Platform stand I charge my iPad 2 all the time in it, as it keeps it off the bedside table, which means I have less clutter.

Using Skype

(Note: photo above is of my iPad 2 with Skype default image, to give a guide only) I love to Skype my family back in New Zealand and the iPad is great I mainly have it portrait mode but landscape works well also and with the Platform stand it gives me just the right height and stability, stops me from moving around a lot.

Out Come

Would I recommend one? Yes!, Would I buy one? Yes!

Why? Well it is simple and that is the key to it. The overall design and materials are simple yet VERY functional. Just picture using your iPad 2 with a Bluetooth keyboard or even your Android Tablet with a Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse, so many options with this simple stand.
