The Backbone is an iPhone stand that doubles as grip. While on the
table, enjoy a comfortable viewing angle. While in your hand, avoid dropping your iPhone. No need to dock or un-dock, just pick up your phone.
Check the time without lifting your head from the pillow. Send a text message from bed without dropping your iPhone on your face. View alerts as they come in without picking up your phone. Take a photo with one hand. Maintain a firm grip in precarious photo or video situations. Easily position your iPhone for a FaceTime or conference call. Comfortably watch a video with your phone resting on the table.
It's easy, station a Backbone Mobile Stand in each location where you will use it. Our pockets are full too. We designed the Backbone so that you can take it with you, but priced it so that you can afford more than one.
Our favorite locations are on desks, tables, and nightstands, but any horizontal surface works just fine. Quick, simple attaching and detaching allows for easy setup, while
allowing you to avoid unnecessary bulk when you are on the move.
Will it work with my device?
The suction cup will attach securely to any clean, smooth, flat surface. Smooth, glossy, rigid phones or cases work great, and hold for days. What if my phone has an uneven, seriously scratched, or textured back? We recommend finding a smooth, glossy, rigid case that will compliment your phone.
When attaching the Backbone, wipe the business end of the suction cup and the surface of the phone to remove lint, debris, dried drool, ear grease, or other foreign matter. This will allow you to use the Backbone with ease.
What if my fingers are quite large?
The handle loop openings are .8125 inches across at the most narrow point. Most finger tips fit quite nicely. The overall dimensions of the handle are 1.875 x .3125 x 1.3125 inches. The diameter of the suction cup when attached to a device is 1.25 inches.
Where is it made?
The Backbone will be made of glossy injection molded plastic right here in the Pacific Northwest.
When will I get mine?
The SLS prototypes will ship around the second week of December.
For the production injection molded version, we have listed the estimated delivery date as March 2013 in an effort to under-promise and over-deliver. Our manufacturing lead time is 5-6 weeks for mold production. With the funding period ending near the beginning of December, this will give us a couple extra months to solve any problems that arise.
We look forward to getting your Backbone Mobile Stands to you as soon as possible! Thank you for your support!
