wEASEL Smartphone Stand
by Mark R
While I was at CTIA 2011 in Orlando about a month ago, I stopped by the wEASEL booth. As you can probably tell by the weird capitalization, this was not a booth with weasels.
The wEASEL is a handy device that affixes to the back of a smartphone with an included 3M adhesive rectangular pad. It has a kickstand on the back which is good for propping up whatever phone you have in both landscape and the portrait mode that you see in the photo to the left.
You can also see the plastic circular thing on the back of it, which can retract into the wEASEL like those pull-out handles on roll away luggage. The purpose of the loop is so it can be hung on this circular hook that also affixes to a car dash or wall with adhesive.
In short, the device can stand, lean, hang, and be secure while holding if the user puts his or her finger through the aforementioned loop. Not only does this insure that you don’t drop it, but it makes it easier to retrieve from one’s breast or pants pocket.
If you want to check out this wEASEL for yourself, then feel free to order it on the official site here for a price of $24.95.
