Twelve South Compass Red

The new hues of Compass complement iPad’s design and fit every personality. iPad Silver matches the back of iPad 2. Tactical Black blends with the front of the black iPad 2 and Candy Apple Red is the perfect choice for those who prefer to stand out from the crowd. All three versions are made from heavy gauge steel creating a solid, sturdy stand for hands-free or hands-on use of iPad.

Choosing a color isn’t the only option Compass offers. The small, mobile stand lets you decide how to use and view iPad. Use Compass upright like an easel to view iPad in both portrait and landscape positions. Position iPad in landscape mode to flip through an iBook, watch the movie you shot on iPad 2, stream iTunes shows or scan Mail. Switch to portrait view for chatting with a friend on FaceTime, playing with PhotoBooth or showing an iPhoto slideshow.

Twelve South Compass for iPad easel stand Compass has a hidden flip down secondary leg that transforms it into a mini typing stand. In work mode, Compass positions iPad at the perfect angle for typing on iPad’s onscreen keyboard, making it easy to work in Pages, Numbers, Keynote or just update your Facebook status or send a quick tweet. Compass is small enough to use on airplane tray tables, in the boardroom, at coffee shops and anywhere else you take your iPad.

When the work is done, Compass folds flat into the size of a candy bar, easily fitting in your bag. Charlie Sorrel of Wired said, “What really stands out about the Compass (apart from its looks) is that it folds up into such a portable package.”

“People can choose a color for their iPad Smart Cover or case, so why shouldn’t they have some color options for their stand?” said Andrew Green, Creative Director of Twelve South. “Colors seemed like a natural evolution for our popular, pocket-sized stand for iPad.”
