Tablets, arise!

The proliferation of tablets has spawned dozens of creative and cool stands for the reading-friendly mobile devices. It's time for tablets to take a stand!

Designer Scott Eaton took inspiration from the ancient Moai of Easter Island to create this stand for a tablet and phone. He introduced it at the London Design Festival in 2014.

This soft, pillow-like stand by Flazbag works much like the Mae West Lips Sofa by Salvador Dali; the tablet sits on the jutting lower lip.

Kid-friendly option

Speck's iGuy for iPad Mini tablets is both free-standing and durable. A soft foam construction means no more cracked iPads...and a lot of huggability.
