Whether it's web surfing at home, sharing design specs with a client, engaging waiting customers in a fresh way, and more, Perch provides a functional and attractive way to display and use the iPad.
Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) December 19, 2011
IPEVO, Inc., a designer and maker of technology products for education and business, has introduced the Perch Side Stand as part of the Perch family of iPad/iPad 2 stands. The products are presently available for purchase through IPEVO's online store (http://www.ipevo.com).
Also known as Perch M-type, the Perch Side Stand is 33 inches (85 centimeters) tall, positioning Apple's iPad (or iPad 2, depending on chosen model) for seated users. As Perch M is a standalone support and mount for the iPad, the stand may be used in a wide variety of contexts and environments for business, education, and personal use.
Possible use environments include: waiting rooms; doctor's offices and related medical and health services such as eye-care clinics; hair and beauty salons; freelance consultancy-based services such as interior design, construction and home improvement, tax preparation and financial planning, tutoring, wedding planning, etc.; hotel lobbies; classrooms and libraries; museums and art galleries; restaurant waiting areas (e.g. to display the menu); and more. Naturally, Perch M can also be used at home while lounging on the couch or in similar scenarios away from the desk or table.
Several design features enhance Perch M's portability and flexibility for home or office. A forged aluminum support leg makes Perch lightweight enough to be easily transported and slid into position. Perch M weighs 8.8 pounds, and the stand's overall thin profile gives the user numerous options for placement. Additionally, heavy-duty steel feet provide stability, but are thin and V-shaped such that they can be tucked under furniture or positioned at the corner of a sofa or similar.
Available in black or white, Perch is designed with a simplicity and elegance intended to visually complement Apple's iPad. Installation of the iPad is also simple. The iPad snaps into the stand's rugged silicone holder, and removal of the iPad is facilitated by the holder's cutout design: the user can grasp the iPad firmly and use a grip tab to remove the device in a single motion.
The iPad can be used in either portrait or landscape orientation courtesy of a dual-axis hinge. Users simply twist the Perch's iPad holder to orient the iPad according to their preference and application. In the same manner, the hinge allows users to customize viewing angle with a tilt. No knobs or screws are required.
“Perch M recognizes that seated users are often away from the conventional desktop environment,” said Royce Hong, CEO and big head of design of IPEVO. “Whether it's web surfing at home, sharing design specs with a client, engaging waiting customers in a fresh way, and more, Perch M provides a functional and attractive way to display and use the iPad. And because of Perch M's strong yet lightweight construction, the stand can be positioned most anywhere, in between an existing furniture setup or even with its flat legs tucked under a couch or table. It's an extremely versatile product we're very proud of.”
In addition to Perch M, two other Perch models are also available. Perch S is designed for tabletop use, while Perch L positions the iPad for standing users.
Perch M is now available through IPEVO's online store at http://www.ipevo.com.
