There’s no doubt about it – this year is the year of the tablet PC. Between the iPad Air, Samsung Galaxy Tab series, Microsoft Surface, Kindle Fire HDX, and Google Nexus 7, chances are someone on your shopping list will find themselves with a new tablet by the end of the year. While tablet PCs are much more portable and easier to work with than their laptop and desktop counterparts, their small size lends themselves well to poor ergonomics. Luckily, we’ve got the right stuff to make your new tablet both convenient and comfortable to use.
Goldtouch Bluetooth Mini Wireless Keyboard
Typing on a tablet keyboard for any significant length of time can be a real pain – literally! In addition to putting up with the fun of iOS’s autocorrect, the on-screen keyboard on most tablets often seem to have spotty hitboxes, making rapid, accurate typing a chore. More importantly, jamming your fingers against the screen so frequently can, over time, cause pain in the fingers and joints. The Goldtouch Bluetooth Mini Wireless Keyboard offers a miniature full-function keyboard with soft-touch key switches and an ultra low profile. Powered by a pair of AA batteries, the Goldtouch Bluetooth Mini Wireless Keyboard also features a set of Mac and Windows hotkeys, making it a great multipurpose keyboard option for people who switch between tablets and traditional Bluetooth-enabled laptops. Other wireless Bluetooth keyboards such as the Goldtouch Go!2 Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard offer more ergonomically-friendly options, but when it comes to weight and simplicity, nothing can touch the Goldtouch Bluetooth Mini Wireless Keyboard.
Goldtouch Go! Travel Notebook and Tablet Stands
Of course, typing on traditional keyboards might be comfortable, but it also means that you’ll be forced to put the tablet itself down. While some tablets like iPads have their own unique stand options, it never hurts to have a bit more variety in viewing angles, especially if your tablet of choice doesn’t have a stand attached to its case. The Goldtouch Go! Travel Notebook and Tablet Stand makes a great option if you’re looking to adjust your tablet’s viewing angle while still holding it securely in place. The compact, lightweight construction of the Goldtouch Go! Travel Notebook and Tablet Stands makes them easy to toss in a backpack or briefcase for travel use, while still being sturdy enough to support full-sized laptops as well should it be necessary to break out ye olde Macbook Pro. Best of all, you can get one of these stands absolutely free with the purchase of some of our most popular ergonomic chairs and height-adjustable desks.
Innovative 7050-SWITCH Dual Monitor and Tablet Arm
If you use your tablet in the office, your tablet mounting options get even more variety. One of the coolest options out there is the Innovative 7050-SWITCH Dual Monitor and Tablet Arm. This unique arm system pairs a fingertip-adjustable Innovative 7050 monitor arm and Switch bracket with a second arm topped off with a quick release tablet bracket. This allows you to use two monitors up to 24″ wide on a sturdy crossbar, while having individual adjustment for your tablet mount that makes it easy to insert or remove your tablet. For the tablet user who wants the productivity gains of a twin-monitor setup, the convenience of a tablet arm, and easy adjustment for both, there’s simply nothing else like it.
