In Pictures: Look, ma, no hands! 9 mounts for mobile devices

On the desk or on the go, it is often inconvenient -- and sometimes dangerous -- to have to hold your smartphone or tablet. These mounts for your car, office or home let you drive, work or play hands-free.

iOstand The iOstand ($100) is a minimally designed mount made out of solid steel with either a stainless steel or powdercoat finish. You use it by attaching an iOadapt adapter (a small disc less than 1mm thick) to the back of your device or its case. The disc -- and your device -- then magnetically snaps into place on the iOcore, the carrier on top of the mount. You can rotate your tablet in almost any direction.

The iOstand comes with two iOadapts so that you can use it with more than one device. There are also other stands, like the iOwall wall mount ($60) or the smaller iOmini ($90), which is made specifically for use with smartphones.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
