Gravity defying stand for mobile phones, small tablets & other stuff

It’s hard to get excited about a stand for a mobile phone but I am pretty impressed by What?Gavity Mobile Phone Holder from Sheffield, UK-based

The stand, which claims to have “guaranteed compatibly with all mobile phone designs,” has an affixed 2 1/2 by 4 1/4 inch rubber mat which grabs whatever device you place on it and keeps it from falling.  It worked fine with my iPhone 4S, Blackberry, Android phone and iPod Touch. The company says it will also hold an iPad which is sort of true. The rubber surface is able to hold an original iPad but the stand itself falls over unless you anchor it with a weight capable of offsetting the weight of the iPad. I didn’t try it with an iPad 2.

Ideasbynet is a promotions company that sells in bulk — pens mugs, mouse mats and other things that companies typical slap their logo on and give away.  The pricing for the device starts at 4.84 UK pounds ($7.64) in per item in quantities of 100 with an imprinted company logo.  I have no idea if they even offer single unit pricing nor do I know what they would charge to  ship to the U.S.   If I find out, I’ll update this post.

In the mean time, check out the company’s promotional video:
