ezGear on Wednesday introduced
The Original Ezl
— a folding stand for the video iPod that will ship on November 27, 2006. The Original Ezl costs $14.99.
Pronounced “easel,” The Original Easel is made of ABS plastic and when laid flat measures 1/8th of an inch high. Extended, the device props your video iPod upright at a slight angle to display the screen at an optimal angle.
ezGear expects The Original Ezl to appeal to travelers who want to watch their iPods from their airplane tray tables; the device has non-skid pads to prevent it from slipping. It also lifts the iPod slightly off the table to provide access to the dock connector. It can work with most iPod cases, too.
