When it comes to mobile phone accessories, sometimes simplicity is the route best (and least) travelled. Take for example this handy little $6 phone stand from InnovationWednesday that allows you to stand your phone up (plugged in) for use watching video, using as an alarm clock, or however else it might suit your tastes:
Realizing it IS Wednesday, here is a video for those who tend to go braindead by the middle of the work week:
And for those who might not be brain dead but aren’t thinking “proactively” at the moment, a little note by OKRB20DET on the YouTube video points out:
why would i wanna have my G1 sideways? the screen doesn’t rotate yet. so you would have to open the keyboard to see things right-side up….
There could always be an app on the market that auto-displays in landscape, but for basic purposes, this is a gripe you have to acknowledge. Either way, I’m sure Innovation Wednesday will be making these for future Android devices that DO have sensitive accelerometers and for $6 its a nifty simple accessory.
