    Yea yea I know I'm a sucker for accessories, but I sold a new Griffin Elan case on ebay for $20, so this xstand only cost me $15.

    I was originally gonna just get a dock but I wanted something that matched my MBP aluminum and I thought this would look better on my desk. The build quality is quite amazing and the aluminum stand is rock solid. Good luck trying to bend it. As you see in the pics, it's held in by 4 rubber feet. The feet do come off and it worked better good with my Seidio Innocase II case.

    What I like:

    -Top notch build quality and well worth the money if your looking for a desk accessory.
    -You can tap/touch the screen without the phone falling out. Great for calculator use or just rockin Pandora. You get the idea.
    -Stand swivels vertically/horizontally (awesome for watching vids)
    -Has the iMac hole so you can keep your charging/syncing wire looking clean on your desk.
    -The phone doesn't touch the x part of the stand. Brilliant.
    -Comes with the 2G and 3G feet for the stand. Smart thinking.


    What I don't like:

    Honestly I really don't think there is anything negative to say about this stand. It's a straight foward accessory. If your looking for a nice desk accessory to go with your iphone, I highly recommend this. One thing to note, you have to have one hand on the base of the stand and use the other hand to take the phone out. Only drawback IMO.

    Here are the pics, enjoy!

    Yes the USB cable fits through the hole in the back to keep a nice clean look. Think of the iMac, same idea.

    Ughh I wish. I tried my red metallic slider and it was a no go :(. Only case I got to work and fit is the seidio innocase.

    iPhone Stand

    Looks great, is the phone sturdy while in the stand? Will it tip easy?
    I really like that stand and the overall appearance.

    Thanks for the pictures.

    No way it will tip over on a desk. It is rock solid. The only way I can see it tipping over is if you pull the sync cord or knock it over yourself. I'm really impressed with the quality.

    couldn't you just take the rubber piece out from the corners ? or put in the 1G rubber mounts ?

    Yes I took them out and only my innocase will fit. My slider just misses out. I was pissed. Looks like cases like the contour flick and incipio feather will only fit.

    Thanks again for the info.

    Not a problem man. This is how I'm using the stand with the innocase. It looks better without the rubber bumpers IMO. Oh well, my slider will be used when I am on the road.

    Not a problem man. I like to take pics for people to see what the product looks like. Makes buying something much easier. Let us know what you think when you get it. Mine came in 2 days from Cali so you should get yours in no time.

    I ended up ordering Seidio Innocase II after seeing how it looks on your + Xtand.

    I will let you know my thoughts once I get mine as well.

    Again, thanks for going through the trouble to post the pics.

    we all need some help, don't feel bad :D

    Nice man, yeah let us know what you think. I love the case, it feels so much thinner to a incase slider, which I use full time.

    Just a little update for anyone interested. Since I like using the incase slider full time I thought I'd show everyone that you can use it with the xStand but it will only sit in the bottom 2 feet. It stays with no problems but I'm not a clumsy person (if you are, I can see it dropping out). It's also simple to pull off and put back on the stand. Anyways thought I would share, here are the pics so you can see what I mean.

    I have mStand for my work Dell on my left, 24" LED in the center, mStand for my Unibody MBP on my right and mStand for my books (great to set your reference manual or book) to the right of MBP. The Xtand will not take the center stage. I now have matching stands for all my gadgets.
