Vogel’s introduces universal tablet mounting system12 April 2011
RingO supports the most popular brand of tablet PCs – including the iPad, iPad 2 and Galaxy Tab – with more versions in development.
The new launch allows users to mount their tablet onto virtually any surface, as well as in the car, so they can enjoy watching movies, reading the latest news or using any app, hands-free.
The holder clips onto the tablet, which snaps securely onto any of the range mounts in the family: Wall Mount, Car Mount, Flexible Mount and others.
Vogel’s originally introduced the universal mounting system for iPad at IFA in Berlin, September 2010, under the name Mount & Cover. Subsequently, the system was introduced to the USA under the trademarked name of RingO.
RingO for iPad 2 will be available early May at a variety of major retailers and Apple Premium Resellers throughout the USA and Europe.
Albert Zeeman, v-p Innovations at Vogel’s, commented: “We simply needed a better name for our patented system. Mount & Cover was focused on the original iPad, while RingO will support a range of major tablets. We expect that tablet and accessory manufacturers will be excited by the potential of this new product, and will want to license RingO for incorporation in their own products.”
