It’s an age-old debate. Well, it’s not age-old, but it’s a debate. Stylus or pointer? A stylus gives you pinpoint control for your iPad, but a pointer gives you the length you need to share and present for students or colleagues.

Those days of fierce stylus vs. pointer battles are over with the new Telescoping Stylus. Yes, it’s a stylus and a pointer. All you have to do is provide a gentle pull, and the stylus (5.4″) telescopes out to a full pointer (15.2″). This two-in-one versatility means you now have the best of both worlds. We like to call our new product a stylus that rises to the challenge. And it can definitely rise to your challenges in the classroom or the office.

The Telescoping Stylus features a sturdy bronze construction; this isn’t one of those flimsy toothpick styluses. It weighs 21 grams and has a good, solid feel in the hand. Something else that aids precise operation is the omnidirectional rubber tip. It’s specially formulated just for touchscreens, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised at just how much more accurate (and productive) you can be with everyday operation or for presentations. This tip isn’t just a one-operation wonder, either; from gaming to drawing to typing to navigating all your apps, there’s not much you can’t do with the Telescoping Stylus.

Head on over to our Product Page to check out pictures and get one for yourself. The Telescoping Stylus is now available at a great price, and it’s sure to make teaching and presentations easier… and maybe even a little more fun.

Three New Colors — The PadPillow Family Grows

Filed Under (iPad in Business, All Products, APPLICATION, IPEVO, PadPillow) by ipevoblog on 2012-05-13

Are you familiar with PadPillow? It’s the soft pillow stand that makes your e-reading and tablet computing much more comfortable. And now PadPillow is available in three new colors — Lemongrass, Honeysuckle, and Tangerine. PadPillow conforms to your body, and now it might just conform to your personal sense of style, too.

If you’re not familiar with PadPillow, this cushy triangular stand is made from a soft foam covered in an equally soft denim cover. PadPillow is for all those times you use your iPad or ebook reader away from the desk, whether it’s lounging on the sofa or reclining in bed. You can place it on the bed, the carpet, the arm of the sofa, or right in your lap. PadPillow can be used with all generations of iPad, including the new iPad 3, and it can also be used with other tablets and ebook readers like the different Kindles and Nooks. It can even be used with traditional magazines.

One more note: PadPillow comes in two sections which can be compactly kept together or folded apart. When folded apart, PadPillow gives you room for a separate keyboard if you’re writing emails or having an IM session, for just two examples.

Lemongrass, Honeysuckle and Tangerine (which are subtle shades of yellow-green, pink and orange) join the existing three PadPillow colors: Steve’s Blue Jeans, Light Khaki, and Charcoal Gray. That’s a total of six PadPillow colors to express your individuality while you’re getting work done or enjoying a nice, long read. Don’t crane and don’t strain: get PadPillow and enjoy a better way to read, surf, watch movies, and much more.

Head on over to the PadPillow product page. See how each color looks and read more about why so many IPEVO customers love their PadPillows.

Back in the last part of 2010, we posted an open call to European distributors in an effort to give the Point 2 View USB Document Camera a much-needed visit to Europe. We can now report that the Point 2 View has a brand new launch pad for European customers with our Amazon UK storefront. IPEVO can now ship to all 27 European Union countries.

The final item is the Wireless Presentation System for turning any classroom or conference room projector into a wireless projector to make sharing and presenting easier.

iPad 3 How-To: Perch Holder for iPad 2 and 3

Perch Holder for iPad 2 and 3

This is our third entry in the iPad How-To series where we help you maximize your use of the iPad 3 and IPEVO accessories.

We recently introduced the standalone Perch iPad 2 Holder, and now (drum roll please), its new name is the Perch Holder for iPad 2 and 3. The Holder is offered for anyone who purchased a Perch stand (all three lengths) for the original iPad who then upgraded to an iPad 2 and now the new iPad, iPad 3. By just buying the holder instead of an entirely new stand, you save money and your technology grows with you. That’s a pretty powerful one-two punch.

The Perch Holder works with both iPad 2 and iPad 3. So if you have a Perch stand for the original iPad and you bought an iPad 3, just purchase the standalone Holder and you’ll be good to go.

All you do to install the Perch Holder is press the holder button in the back of Perch (where the holder meets the aluminum leg), slide the old holder out, and pop the new one in until the button clicks into place. You can also switch back and forth between the holders if you’re using different iPads.

As we told you in the last entry, the best way to install iPad 3 into the holder is bottom first. Slip the two bottom corners in, making sure they tuck underneath the ribbing, and then angle the iPad up and press the top two corners firmly in until the top ribbing secures the device. The Perch Holder still has the same versatile dual-axis hinge in back, so you can adjust viewing angle as well as orientation very easily.

Taking the iPad 3 out is even easier: press down the side tab, grasp the iPad from the back, and pull forward, same as the original iPad.

One last note: as you’d expect, all of the ports and controls of iPad 3 are accessible when it’s installed in Perch Holder, including sleep/wake mode, volume control, headphone jack, microphone, speakers, front camera lens, dock connector, and even the rear camera lens.

Perch Holder

So if you have a Perch for the original iPad and need an upgrade because you just bought an iPad 3, save some coin and get the Perch Holder for iPad 2 and 3.

iPad 3 How-To: Perch

Hello and welcome to entry number two in our iPad 3 How-To series, covering all of IPEVO’s iPad 3 accessories.

The Perch family of stands works with all generations of iPad. There’s a model just for iPad, and there’s another model for both the iPad 2 and iPad 3 — make sure you choose the right model for your device when you add Perch to your shopping cart.

As you may know, Perch provides an attractive and sturdy stand for all of your iPad habits. There are three lengths to choose from: S Type, for tabletops, the larger M Type for seated users, and the largest L Type for standing users. No matter which type you choose, you’ll enjoy easy installation of your device and generous customization of orientation and viewing angles thanks to a special dual-axis hinge.

Perch family

With the iPad 3, the best approach to insertion is to install the bottom of the iPad 3 first. Slip in the two bottom corners of iPad 3, making sure they are tucked underneath the ribbing. Only after that should you angle in the iPad 3 and push the top two corners into the holder. Firmly press in the corners of iPad 3 until the ribbing is on top of the device and holding it in. The iPad 3 should be tightly in place, and not loose or wobbling.

All ports and controls of the iPad 3 are accessible thanks to cutouts in the holder, including sleep/wake mode, volume control, headphone jack, microphone, speakers, front camera lens, dock connector, and even the rear camera lens.

For troubleshooting with any of the Perch stands, just send us a note at cs@ipevo.com and we’ll be glad to help.

PadPillow

In the handful of days since the new iPad’s (or iPad 3’s) introduction, we’ve been busy at work exploring this great new tablet computer. And we want to make sure you know exactly how to use your new iPad with all of our existing iPad accessories. We will release several iPad 3 How-To’s, and here is the first, everybody’s favorite go-anywhere pillow stand, PadPillow. PadPillow is a plush, triangular pillow stand designed for all those times you’d rather be lounging on the couch, stretched out on the carpet, or lying in bed with your iPad rather than confined to the chair and desk. PadPillow has two sections, which can either be folded together for a compact lap or couch arm stand, or stretched apart to accommodate a full keyboard. PadPillow is so comfy you could use it as a pillow after you’re done using it as a stand — and believe me, we have!

Cushi

PadPillow is not so dependent on exact dimensions as other cases and stands, so iPad 3 works just fine with PadPillow. In the compact position, the leather IPEVO tag helps keep iPad 3 in place for viewing, reading or surfing. In fact, PadPillow works with all three generations of iPad, ebook readers like Kindle and Nook, and even traditional magazines. So for avid readers who enjoy being comfortable for long reading sessions, PadPillow is perfect. And on that topic, one thing to note is the new iPad’s gorgeous screen. It’s the same 9.7 inches as the iPad 2, but it’s able to deliver an incredible 2048 x 1536 HD resolution and 264 pixels per inch. This is great for a lot of things — including gaming and movie-watching — but it’s also ideal for reading. Having checked out ebooks on the new iPad, we can say it’s a really, really nice experience, whether you’re just reading text or enjoying a full-color picture book. So no matter what you plan on doing with your new iPad, we have you covered with PadPillow. That’s all for our iPad 3 How-To series, and we hope you’ve found it helpful. As always, email us at cs@ipevo.com if you have any questions about how to use your iPad 3 with IPEVO’s family of iPad accessories.

The Accessory You Can Hug – Introducing PadPillow Pillow Stand for iPad

Hey, iPad users. Need a little support for your iPad when you’re hanging out in bed surfing or working, or when you’re sitting on the couch, or even on the floor? We had that problem, too. You shouldn’t have to be chained to a desk to enjoy the kind of hands-free support you’d get from a metal stand or portfolio case stand, both of which need a hard and stable surface to work.

IPEVO PadPillow Pillow Stand for iPad

Enter PadPillow Pillow Stand, IPEVO‘s newest member of the family. PadPillow is designed for your own body as much as it is for the iPad. It’s a super-soft, super-comfy body pillow shaped like a triangle—well, two triangles with a soft hinge, but we’ll get to that in a second. Basically, you can use PadPillow on your lap or belly for extended, comfortable use of the iPad. It’ll feel as cozy and huggable as a bed pillow, with its soft foam and its 100% cotton denim cover. But it’ll be stable enough to keep the iPad at just the right viewing angle for all your multimedia apps—Angry Birds, anyone?—as well as the movie-watching, emailing, and all that other fun and productive stuff you do.

IPEVO PadPillow Pillow Stand for iPad and iPad 2

It’s also pretty darned versatile. Remember I said it has two sections connected with a soft hinge? You can extend these triangular sections out and rest a full Bluetooth keyboard in front of the iPad, and then rest your hands on a comfy foam wrist support. Or, you can fold the sections together to make a compact triangle that’s great for your lap or, say, the arm of a sofa. In this configuration, a raised leather label acts as a stopper to keep the iPad in place. Pretty smart. In either position, you can use PadPillow’s unique shape to change the viewing angle just by changing the position of your body. Now that’s comfort computing!

IPEVO PadPillow Pillow Stand

A couple other notes: the blue denim cover is removable and machine-washable. We bet you’ll be using PadPillow as a pillow for your head at some point, maybe after a long day of shooting aliens or what not, so we want PadPillow to always be fresh and clean for you. Also, while PadPillow was designed for the iPad, it can accommodate many other types of tablet computers, along with ebook readers like the Nook or Kindle, and even regular books and magazines. So tackle that War and Peace novel you’ve always been meaning to—you now have a fun and functional pillow to help you get through the lengthier passages.

IPEVO PadPillow Pillow Stand

Try PadPillow out in bed, on the carpet, on the lounger or the deck chair, or on your sectional. We guarantee PadPillow will take you to Cloud Nine in no time.
