    JADU - is your design correct?

    Is it OK to hold the iPad at the bottom? Won't it put too much pressure on the bottom of iPad?

    From the photo on your website it looks like the iPad will tumble as the center of gravity will overshoot the base area as the user tilts the iPad backwards (closer to horizontal surface).

    The design of the stand is solid :)
    The iPad is designed to be held by one hand while you use the other hand to control it, so the bezel area is very strong. I don't know if you have one, but if you hold the ipad at the bottom and lay it flat, there is no flex or undo stress on the ipad.
    With the iPad in the stand reclined 60 degrees (the flattest it gets), and in portrait mode, you can tap the screen at the top and the stand doesn't budge. The flip out support has to be used when it is vertical. It works okay horizontally without the support, but it works best with it. We spent all weekend playing different games that required a lot of tapping and swiping and the Skadoosh stand worked very well.
    We are sending many of them out to be reviewed in a week or so before production begins. So hopefully these concerns will be addressed objectively in the reviews.

    Thanks

    Looks good, but I'd get it out for consumption asap...

    Pricing!! i like the look of it and appreciate the engineering. Now stop and get it to market. If you over-engineer it now, it raises your per unit cost, and reduces you ability to bring out different improved models later. Just need to know the price.

    Price is the final decision maker for most people. You can always run a conservative introductory price to test the waters, then adjust depending on the response.

    Great looking product. Slim/ or mill down the front a bit for a sleeker look and your good to go.

    Hobbs, I think your stand is the best one out there. Simple design, great lines and total functionality. I really like the ability to set the angle for different viewing conditions. Can't wait to get one and give it a test run.

    Wouldn't one just charge or sync by placing the iPad in vertical mode with the home button/port on top? Looks like a great stand...even if it is causing vendor wars here on the forum :D

    You're not the only who notices that a certain vendor is rather combative on these forums.

    To the OP...looks like a cool stand. I'd say it's one of the favorites I've seen yet. :)
