Belkin Develops Classroom Tablet Stands
- By Dian Schaffhauser
The new Belkin Tablet Stand is designed to help tablet users avoid neck discomfort.
Belkin has come out with two tablet stands specifically intended for education use. The new Belkin Tablet Stand and Belkin Tablet Stand with Storage are designed to help tablet users avoid neck discomfort from prolonged use by establishing an optimal viewing angle. The new products are expected to be out this month.
The two devices are constructed of colorful, durable, non-slip material. The stand can be stacked for compact storage; the storage edition includes a compartment where students can place supplies such as ear buds, device chargers, pencils, and markers under a latch lid.
"Today's classroom is rapidly embracing technology because it has proven to build engaging, highly interactive educational experiences that facilitate student-centered learning," said Jon Roepke, senior product manager at Belkin. "We have spent a significant amount of time observing our education customers in the classroom and capturing valuable feedback to accurately target their needs. This allows us to effectively bridge technology gaps with innovative solutions that help educators achieve more with their technology investments."
