    Hand-E-Holder for iPad and RIM Playbook

    A Michigan-based company has come up with the Hand-e-holder for iPad and other tablets, which makes it easier to securely hang onto your tablet without a devastating drop.

    The Hand-e-holder allows users to rest their tablet device in the palm of their hand by way of an adjustable strap that fits over the hand and easily clicks into place on an adaptor plate. The adapter plate is fixed to the back of the device with 3M’s Dual-Lock fastening material, which, instead of the hook/loop structure of Velcro, uses a mushroom/loop structure that allows it to click into place with a connection that is many times stronger than Velcro.

    The holder also features a swivel head that allows the attached device to be rotated 360-degrees to switch between portrait and landscape orientation.

    While the Hand-e-holder might not be necessary for casual users surfing the web while kicking back on the couch, it could be a godsend in the many workplaces that are adopting tablet computers that sees employees having to cradle such devices for extended periods.

    The Hand-e-holder is available now for $39.99, and the company also offers a variety of stands and clamps that allow users to securely fasten (and easily remove) an iPad-style device just about anywhere. These range from $19.99 to $49.99.
