RAM Offers Versatility and Universal Fit with X-Grip Cradles

RAM first introduced their X-Grip line several years ago with their uniquely designed X-Grip cradle for cell phones.  Since then, three additional sizes have been announced.  I would like to say there couldn’t possibly be room for any additions to the X-Grip line, but I’m betting we’ll be updating this post a few more times.

RAM currently offers the following X-Grip sizes.  All come with a pre-molded 1″ ball attached tot he back except the largest X-Grip III which uses the RAM-B-202U ball.

RAM-HOL-UN7BU (X-Grip) – Cell Phones

Minimum Width = 0.875″
(Devices at 0.875″ must be a minimum of 4″ in height to fit into holder)
Maximum Width = 3.25″

RAM-HOL-UN8BU (X-Grip II) -Small to Medium Tablets like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7, Apple iPad Mini.  These also fit larger 7″ GPS units.

Minimum Width = 2.25″
(Devices 2.25″ in width must be a minimum of 7″ in height to fit)

What’s a Phablet?

Filed under: Other Mounts & Accessories — Tags: , , — mountguys @ 5:57 pm

Is your latest phone just a little smaller than a tablet but a little larger than a cell phone?  If so, congratulations, you an owner of a phablet (we didn’t make this up, it’s now a category of device).

The functionality of phablets approach and in some cases surpass tablets.  Personally I feel a little strange using mine, feels a little like holding a paperback book up to your ear.  I’ll get used to it.

This is the MountGuys Blog so naturally we’re going to discuss mounting options.  The problem with a phablet is it’s a little too large for a standard phone cradle and little too small for a tablet cradle.  Our buddies at Arkon Resources have recently come out with their Slim Grip Ultra cradle.  It opens from 4.4 – 7.5 inches and grips your phablet tightly.  Easy to install and remove too.
