I’ve seen a lot of accessories in the past few years. Some inventive, some overrated. But few are so inventive and unique that you just got to have them. I first spotted the MiniRizer in a promo image over at CrackBerry.com, and my instincts told me I had to check it out for myself!
The Matias Corporation is best known for their innovative custom & award winning keyboard designs, as well as their high-end laptop stands. The MiniRizer works great with all smartphones, iTouch, business cards & more.
In the box:
° MiniRizer stand
° Carrying sleeve
° Flat 2.12” x 3.35” x 0.28” (5.4 x 8.5 x 0.7 cm)
After spending about a week with my own MiniRizer I’ve come to realize that life without one of these made owning a smartphone feel tedious. I was always holding the damn thing! If I lay my BlackBerry down I’m constantly trying to keep it close enough so I can just sneak a peak at the homescreen. Checking for messages, updates, battery level.. it’s all the norm for many of us.
Now that I have this clever stand I find everything on my BlackBerry without all the hassle. The screen is always perched towards me now. I don’t even have to worry about the kids spilling drinks on the coffee table anymore because my phone is upright & lifted a few centimeters off the surface. Plus having the phone view facing me while I’m at my computer or holding the PlayBook is too cool for words. You really don’t know what your missing without one.
Set-up is simple – 2 piece connect together putting your device at either a 40 degree or 50 degree angle. Also comes with a handy carrying pouch to keep everything together while on-the-go.
The MiniRizer is available in 2 colors (black & clear) and retails for just $14.95 plus shipping over at http://matias.ca. You can be sure we’ll be keeping an eye on their future product releases, because after this I can’t imagine Matias makes anything we wouldn’t love.
