Following Success of PadPillow, IPEVO to Release PadPillow Lite; Smaller, Lighter Pillow Stand Joins the Original PadPillow for iPad

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) January 04, 2013 Advertised as the pillow stand which "makes you & your iPad comfortable," the PadPillow is one of the signature iPad accessories to come from IPEVO, Inc., a maker and designer of technology products for educators, businesspeople and consumers. Now IPEVO has expanded the PadPillow family with its newest product, PadPillow Lite. This compact pillow stand delivers several core features of the original PadPillow, but with smaller dimensions and a lighter weight. The stand is now available at IPEVO's Online Store at

Like the original, PadPillow Lite is a pillow stand for all generations of iPad, many varieties of other tablet computers, and ebook readers such as Barnes and Noble's Nook and Amazon's Kindle. PadPillow Lite is made from a high-density foam with a removable 100% cotton fabric cover in either Dark Gray or Pink. The broad base of the stand allows it to provide steady support on surfaces other stands might have trouble with, such as a couch arm or cushion, the bed, or the carpet. The cushy foam of PadPillow Lite also makes it ideal to place in the lap while sitting or the stomach while reclining.

At 5.9 ounces (168g), PadPillow Lite is less than twice as heavy as the original PadPillow (which is already quite light at less than a pound). The Lite version measures 9.8 x 4.3 x 9.2" (25 x 11 x 23.5cm), which is also significantly less than its predecessor. As such, the company has emphasized PadPillow Lite's travel-readiness and its featherlight weight.

PadPillow Lite may be used in one of two positions, depending on application, body position and preference. Folded together, the stand provides a steeper viewing angle for the device, but the stand can also be laid flat out for a lower viewing angle. In the folded together position, two embedded magnets keep the pillow sections in place. A sewn tag provides a stopper for the device to prevent slippage.

"We see room for both versions of PadPillow for iPad and eReader users," said Royce Hong, CEO and big head of design for IPEVO. "Those who prefer the original PadPillow will enjoy its multiple viewing angles and the comfort of a larger pillow, particularly when resting the stand on the body. PadPillow Lite users will appreciate the stand's light weight and slim profile, particularly for transport and travel, which will make this stand a favorite for businesspeople and commuters. Regardless, both pillow stands deliver what we call 'comfort computing,' particularly for extended reading, gaming, or movie-watching sessions." Both PadPillow and PadPillow Lite are now available at IPEVO's Online Store at PadPillow Lite may be purchased at a price of $15.
