Car and Motorcycle Mounts for the Apple iPad Mini Part I

Filed under: Other Mounts & Accessories — Tags: , — mountguys @ 5:38 pm

Apple’s announcement of the new iPad Mini brings a smaller tablet to compete with the Samsung Galaxy Tab, Kindle Fire and others in the 7″ diagonal space.  Measuring 7.87 inches x 5.3 inches and only .28 inches deep, this tablet features a larger 7.9″ screen versus the competition.  Ever try to hold the iPad in one hand for a long time?  Not easy to do.  This weighs only 11 ounces and fits nicely in one hand.  The iPad Mini will feature Apple’s new lightening adapter.

This is Part I of a series on mounting what will be a very popular device.  It always takes the manufacturers a few months to make custom cradles, so until then there are some excellent universal cradle mounts which will hold your Apple iPad Mini quite securely.  Some prefer a universal mount as it can be used a few years from now when Apple announces their new Apple iPad Mini 2 – and you know they will!

As always, we present some nice options for consideration.  Look for our follow up with custom mounting solutions when they are available.
