Last week we were telling you about a pretty cool accessory for mobile device, Logitech’s modular iPhone case, which was described as “the only case an iPhone will ever need”. Today, we have big news about another potentially great gadget. This time it’s about a stand: the SlideStand smartphone stand. The SlideStand is an adhesive piece of plastic that measures about 2.6 inches long and 1.6 inches wide. It’s only 3 mm thick, which makes it barely noticeable on your smartphone. You can fold the stand with its multi-position arm to hold your phone upright (perfect for portrait viewing) or you can fold it to stand on its side. As you know, most kickstand cases give you only landscape positioning, which is not really ideal if you want to do some reading on your phone.
The SlideStand smartphone stand comes in a variety of cool colors, including red, green, purple, pink, black or white. You can use it for your iPhone to get a handful of viewing angles. We’re just a little concerned about the little arm losing its stiffness on the long run but for its price, the stand is more than ok.
SlideStand smartphone stand – price and availability
The SlideStand smartphone stand usually costs $7.99, which is a great price in itself, but there is another way to get it even cheaper: by applying the discount code SS30M at the checkout, you get it for just $5.59. The shipping fees to the US are $3.25, which brings you to a total of $8.84. Please note that you need to have a PayPal or Bitcoin account in order to make the purchase.
The only thing that could be a downside is that the adhesive is semi-permanent, which means that you cannot remove the stand from your smartphone and then apply it again. But you can remove it without worrying that it will leave any residues on your phone, the people from SlideStand assured us.
The great thing about the SlideStand smartphone stand is its price. Usually, you find this kind of gadgets for $15-20 and $7.99 for the SlideStand is more than a good price.
