There are plenty of options available to those who like to display their iPhone or other mobile device on their desk. Not many of them work quite like the New Touch Base from NewPCgadgets, however. It looks kind of like an ashtray, but serves to keep your iPhone handy and secure, not your cigarettes. Progress!
The New Touch Base is designed to be elegant, but certainly doesn’t compromise on functionality. The one pound, wedge-shaped acrylic base is outlined with an outer silicone ring that grips your smartphone at an angle that’s comfortable for typing, making calls or viewing videos. It also works for just sitting there, which is how your phone will spend most of its time on your desk.
The silicone ring will work with most cases, too, but you’ll still have the issue of what to do with your docking cable. On the positive side, it won’t be an eyesore when your iPhone’s not in place…unless you’re trying to quit smoking, of course.
The Touch Base for Smartphones is available now for $29.95. Visit newpcgadgets.com for more information.
