Quickparts Assists With Development of Innovative iPad Stand and Accessory -- The PadPivot

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - January 27, 2011) - Quickparts (http://www.quickparts.com), one of North America's largest providers of custom designed parts, ranging from rapid prototyping to plastic injection molding, was recently involved in the prototyping and development of a brand new and creative iPad accessory, the PadPivot.

Labeled as "the ultimate lap and desk stand for your pad, tablet, or e-reader," the PadPivot was created by Canadian inventor Bernie Graham in collaboration with Seattle based industrial designer Jim Young. It features hands-free positioning on a user's lap, and provides adjustable angles and positioning on a desktop. The ingenious hinged design allows PadPivot to then fold up to be small enough to fit in a pocket, purse, or bag, making it the most versatile and unique stand in the marketplace.

PadPivot is compatible with most tablet devices like the iPad, Blackberry Playbook, and Samsung Galaxy Tab, along with book readers like the Kindle and Nook. More information is available at www.padpivot.com, including this informative promotional video.

"Quickparts is very happy to have been involved in the development of the PadPivot," said Patrick Hunter, VP of Sales and Marketing for Quickparts. "The market for tablet devices and their accessories is exploding and evolving. The PadPivot is one of many new products we help launch every day, which is what makes our business exciting."
