Arkon bill themselves as "The Mobile Mounting Specialists," and a trio of iPad specific products help bolster that claim. First up is the IPM-TAPR-R, a highly portable fold-up stand for desktop, tabletop, and even airline folding-traytop use. Only seven inches long when folded, and under three ounces in weight, the stand also boasts non-skid pads for those glass or marble surfaces. Can't afford much more than a Kindle? Don't fret, the stand also works with most ebook readers. Available in black or grey for US$17.95.
Hitting the road? Arkon's got you covered there, as well. The IPM-FSM car mount snaps your iPad into a floor- or dash-mounted 20 inch gooseneck topped with a swivel ball connector for easy portrait or landscape viewing. Load up your favorite GPS app — and don't be surprised if your old Garmin or TomTom comes down with a serious case of penis envy. US$39.95 plus the elbow grease to install it.
How about the kids stuck in the back seat? Covered! The IPM-RSHM mount clips to most headrests and features the same full-rotation/tilt head as the aforementioned car mount (as well as the same US$39.95) MSRP. Don't expect a lot of memo-writing to be done on a 3G-enabled tablet, but it's perfect for hours of Angry Birds pig-destruction on that interstate trip to Grandma's.
