2.0 out of 5 stars
Not so great., 13 Oct. 2010
I purchased this item as I had the need to have my iPhone 4 on my desk. The item itself is quite clever in construction as it is just a piece of plastic. The feet are good and ensure that it sticks to the desk; there is no movement.
However, I have my iphone 4 in a case in order for me to protect it throughout it's lifetime and that has caused some problems. Holding the phone in the portrait mode, the stand is very unstable. I cannot type on the screen and keep it still. Also in this mode I cannot get the charger in at the base. Before anyone asks, this is in both cradle positions.
In the landscape mode, the cradle is a stable and you can charge the phone as the connector is at the side. But how often do you have the phone in that mode?
Overall, the cradle is cheap, portable, but slightly unstable. It does do the job but just not as well as I would like.
