Win the fin, by Liking Octa Products on Facebook!

I've written about the very cool Octa TabletTail before, and now they are giving iPhone Life readers a chance to win one of these cool tablet stands/grips.

I first saw these folks at MacWorld, but I've finally had some hands-on time with the TabletTail. It's a combination grip/stand that attaches either directly to your tablet or a tablet case as long as the case is not porous. This is nice because you can upgrade from an iPad 2 to the new iPad without worrying about compatibility.

The TabletTail is adjustable so you can prop your tablet at a variety of angles. You can also slip your fingers around the tail to find a comfortable way to grip the tablet.

The device connects to the tablet using a very powerful suction cup that you pump to increase the suction. Don't worry about it coming loose. I find it so powerful that I couldn't remove it uneven though I tried really hard. It wasn't until I checked their website and saw the recommendation to slip a credit card between the suction cup and the tablet that it came off. This is a suction cup on steroids!

The tail on the TabletTail is removable and interchangeable with more designs to come. The first generation is a killer whale style but look for dolphins and other cool concepts. My kids were really intrigued by this idea so I am looking forward to what comes next.
