Because Tablets can’t levitate

I’m ashamed of admitting that on multiple occasions while texting in bed with my phone above me, the phone has slipped out of my grasp and hit me square in my face. Just imagine that scenario with a tablet. Hurts just thinking about it! Well, TStand is a pretty neat solution to that rather bizarre (but real, nonetheless) problem. Its acrobatic design allows it to be used in myriad of positions, pretty much leaving your hands to do other important things. Like guarding your face, maybe.
