As revolutionary and handy as tablets such as the iPad have become in just a few years, they are still not set up to be easily held and operated during a Skype call or similar event. Participants end up propping the device at the right angle – which works until there is some screen action that needs to be taken or volume adjustment made – which knocks the camera view off center or topples the whole device to the floor. Mobio devices are manufacturer agnostic, equally at home on Apple, Samsung or other brands. And, for any tablet device it becomes a stand in landscape or portrait mode,depending on the application being run. For video or still camerawork, your hand does not cover the camera, making it easier to take steady shots, up close. Price class $45 .
