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.

Car Mount Options for the Samsung Galaxy Note

Filed under: Other Mounts & Accessories — Tags: — mountguys @ 4:53 pm

The Samsung Galaxy Note is one big cell phone.  It’s also a small tablet.  We read that Samsung sold 5 million units in the past five months, so that warrants a post on the MountGuys Blog.

The challenge of this device from a pure mounting perspective is that it’s too large for most cell phone mounts, but too small of a tablet mount.  It was off to the MountGuys Lab we went.

We were recently able to uncover a nice line from our buddies at Arkon that adds a set of extra long arms to their Slim Grip line and they fit the Samsung Galaxy Note quite nicely.  This allows the cradle to expand to almost 6 inches and that’s big enough to fit your Samsung Galaxy Note.

As always, we present some pictures and links.
