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.

FLOTE m2 Floor Stand Or How To Use Your Tablet Hands Free!

The Flote M2 adjustable floor tablet stand is one of the best stands money can buy.
Designed by Dave Cutler of DCS Concepts, the Flote is a premium product which follows the cool stylish design of Apple gadgets, is manufactured using high quality, resistant materials such as high-grade aluminum and solid steel and allows huge versatility in positioning, so you always get the best viewing angle and ease of usage!

The Flote M2 can be adjusted to any position. Literally! The iPad cradle features a metallic ball joint which attaches to the tablet stand via a strong magnetic mechanism allowing you to rotate the tablet and fluidly adjust it’s position to any direction. More than that, the sustaining pole rotates around it’s axe to help you get easy access when sitting down or getting up from your favorite chair (simply toss it on the side and you’re ready to pass unobstructed), the “boom” (which is the piece holding the tablet cradle) can be adjusted for the perfect height and a length extension allows easy reach when the stand can not be positioned near the sitting place.
Flote M2 Adjustable Floor Tablet - iPad Cradle The sustaining pole has a curved design for easy transportation, which, given the weight of the base, is a big plus when you need to move the stand around.

I used the Flote M2 tablet floor stand for about 2 weeks now and I must confess this is a gadget I did not know I always wanted!
My first thought was: “Why use a tablet stand when you can hold your tablet in your hands” (as most people do)!
Well … this is the part I was wrong with. Using a tablet stand means comfort! Comfort to take notes when you listen to a video tutorial on your tablet, or have the whole family in that Skype video chat (without constantly tweaking the tablet position so everyone fits in), or holding the kid in your arms when watching cartoons, or playing Candy Crash without Max the Kitten all over the tablet (yeap … that’s him, Mr Curiosity, in the user pics below), or cooking a cool recipe from the iPad without fearing flour or water damage, or fixing something by following a Youtube tutorial, or watching live sports on the tablet while still being able to manipulate the remote controller and the smartphone at the same time (yeap … I do that from time to time!!!)!
Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying you can’t do any of the above without a tablet stand, I’m just saying it’s so easier to do them with the Flote M2. And I did not even imagine it before trying it!

Check out the picture gallery in the post for more details and close-up images as well as the video for a full 8 minutes hands-on review which describes all the Flote M2 features and how easy it mounts. For more information about the tablet stand or to buy one check the manufacturer site or their Amazon listing.

Also, if you’re in the market for a tablet stand but you’re looking for something smaller, more office-compatible, please check the Flote Desktop ($219.99 US) and the Flote Orbit ($129.99 US) from the same manufacturer and take advantage of a cool 10% OFF for Mother’s Month Sale (use coupon code MOMSTHEBEST to activate the discount).
