Motorola Flip Stand will hold any tablet or smartphone, and look stylish doing so.

I have to be honest: there haven’t been a whole lot of universal smartphone and tablet stands that have excited me. For the price, maybe; but none have really made me want to jump up and say “I want that.”

But Motorola seems to have come up with quite the simple option of their own. They’re calling it the Flip Stand, and it’s available for $30 at particular retailers.

It gets its name from a flipping mechanism that will allow you to extend a pair of “arms” to hold a smartphone horizontally, or to collapse those arms and use the base of it as a stand for a tablet or to hold a smartphone vertically.

It does come with a “smart” charging cable, but unless you have a compatible Motorola device it really is just a USB charger. If you do happen to have a compatible Motorola device — like the DROID M or likely any other future smartphone or tablet they may come out with — the cable will allow you to automatically launch a dock application.

For $30 it’s not a bad deal whether you have a Motorola smartphone or not. Head to Amazon if you’re interested. [Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]

    it’s shocking to me that you guys haven’t made a review of the Flygrip yet, honestly the best accessory I’ve used on a smartphone in my opinion! Quentyn or Chris or Rob please do some research on Flygrip, it definitely doesn’t disappoint, I’ve heard of it 1st from the developer QBKING77 on YouTube, it’s an accessory that serves as both a horizontal/vertical handstand and more, bit pricey but it’s definitely worth it
