Laptop Butler Or How To Enjoy A Coffee While Working With Your Notebook On Your Lap
This question always puzzled me … and, unfortunately, more often than not, I end up spilling the coffee all over the place!

Bee Towers Universal Tablet Stand by XARMotion

We are always on the lookout for a good tablet stand! Here’s what we usually look for when checking out new stand: ease in accommodating various sized tablets (from 7″ mini tablets to the 9.7″ iPad and the 10.1″ Android tablets); fully adjustable to reach most positions without the need of moving it around; strong build to resist wear and stress at home and office and universal design to fit into the decor.

During the past two weeks I had the pleasure to use and test the Xar Motion Bee Towers.
This stand has 6 adjustment points that allow users to place the table in almost any position. You can raise or lower the tablet height, twist or tilt the tablet holder, extend the telescopic arm to extend your reach, spin the arm 360 degrees to get the best view, and so on… (check the video in the post for an extensive walk-through of of all features).

The Bee Towers is designed to work with all tablet sizes. You can adjust the tablet holder to fit any tablet sized between from 7″ to 10.1″ (this includes Google Nexus 7, the iPad and the most Android and Windows tablets out there). Mounting the holder was an easy job and did not require any special tools (check the mounting instructions in the pics below). Simply screw the arm into the base, snap the base cover in position, mount the tablet holder onto the upper side of the arm and you’re ready to go. The rest is simply a question of adjusting the holder to the desired position.

The XAR Motion Bee Towers is well built and does a good job as floor tablet stand. It comes in two color versions (blue-orange and blue-black) as well as a metal base version. For more details about the Bee Towers or to order one check the XAR Motion website.
