Our first customers have been delighted with the BatRest. They have found it very convenient and they think its shape is pretty cool. And unlike many iPhone accessories, it only costs a few dollars.
London, United Kingdom (PRWEB) September 1, 2008
London-based Seskimo launches the BatRest, the only stand for the iPhone 3G which folds flat to the size of a credit card to fit in your wallet. The iPhone is not supplied with a portable stand and the BatRest is designed to allow iPhone users to watch videos in landscape format without holding the iPhone with their hands. It can be take anywhere for use at your desk, in a cafe or on a plane.
It is available in three colours: black and white (the colours of the iPhone 3G), and translucent. It can also be made in other colours and custom printed as a promotional item.
The BatRest can support other devices such as the original iPhone, the iPod Touch, as well as many other media players, and digital cameras.
Shaped like a bat for mainly functional reasons, the dimensions of the BatRest iPhone stand, when folded flat, are those of a credit card (85mm x 54mm). It fits in the credit card slot of a wallet making it easy to put away, and, more importantly, because small things are so easy to lose, very easy to find. It will also slip easily into many iPhone cases.
The angle at which the iPhone leans back can be adjusted between about 0 and 30 degrees from vertical by opening or closing the arms of the BatRest.
Easily strong enough to support the iPhone, the BatRest is made from durable polypropylene which, being semi-flexible, will not permanently deform like aluminium, or snap like more brittle plastics.
BatRest designer, Courtenay Inchbald, says, "Our first customers have been delighted with the BatRest. They have found it very convenient and they think its shape is pretty cool. And unlike many iPhone accessories, it only costs a few dollars.".
The BatRest is available direct from Seskimo for $3.95. Seskimo ships worldwide. For further information about the only credit-card sized iPhone stand, contact Courtenay Inchbald.
