The Xtand by Just Mobile is a fantastic iPhone/iPod Touch stand. The Xtand has the look and feel of the iMac’s stand and so it compliments all aluminum-bodied Macs terrifically. The one stand-alone factor that makes the Xtand so great, is the fact that it’s constructed for actual aluminum. It is capable of holding the iPhone 3G/3GS as well as the iPod Touch 1G/2G, provides cable management, and allows you to swivel the device a full 360 degrees.
A great design aspect that went into the stand, is that the device will never touch the aluminum part of the stand, only the four rubber grips that hold on to it. Also, there are two rubber feet on the bottom so that it doesn’t move with a gentle nudge. Here are the five main features of the Xtand:
- All solid aluminium construction
- 360 degrees rotation
- Adjustable viewing angle
- Cable management
- Non-slip feet
What I like most about the Xtand is the fact that it goes so well with my MacBook Pro and so it provides for a very elegant setup. The cable management comes into play when you choose to charge or sync your device. You simple fish your charging cable through the hole on the back of the stand and move the extra cable out of sight. I use the Xtand on a daily basis now and it really does not bother me to have to remove my iPod Touch from it’s case so that I can go ahead and place it in the Xtand.
The Xtand retails for a fairly steep price of $39.90 USD, however, as of the date this article was written (December 23, 2009), Amazon is having a 27% off sale on the Xtand. To find out where else you can purchase this and other Just Mobile products, please click HERE.
