Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Car and Home Mounts

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 comes in two flavors: small and large.  The small Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 sports a 7.0″ inch screen which is typical for Samsung’s small end tablets.  The large flavor has a 10.1″ display which I think is a good size versus some of the larger sized displays I have seen lately from the likes of Samsung.  Both tablets feature a real nice 1280 x 780 display and have the ability to run two applications simultaneously. The Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 is a typical tablet in this midsize range as far as size is concerned.   Without a case … Read more…

Car and Home Mounts for the LG G Pad F 8.0 Tablet

The LG G Pad F 8.0 was released in the summer of 2015 (also known as the LGV480).  It’s an economically priced tablet with good performance.  I recently saw these being given away at no charge from a major carrier with a smartphone contract.  Can’t get any cheaper than this. The LG G Pad F 8.0 has an 8″ display similar to an Apple iPad Mini.  A 5MP rear camera and 2MP rear camera makes an adequate entry for video conferencing and photos that don’t require extreme detail.  Running Android 5.0 and sporting a Quad-core, 1200 MHz, ARM Cortex-A7 processor, this tablet … Read more…

Car and Home Mounts for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 Tablet sports an octa-core Exynos 5433 chipset, composed of a 1.9GHz and 1.3GHz quad-core CPU, 32 GB of flash memory (ROM), 3 GB RAM memory and (unlike an iPad) the ability to use a micro SD card.  There are two display sizes available with the same performance specifications.  A 9.7″ diagonal display as well as an 8.0″ inch display both pushing out 2048×1536 (QXGA) sAMOLED which is extremely impressive and better than the laptop I am using.  The smaller display has similar dimensions to an Apple iPad Mini 4 but slightly thinner and lighter. The Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 is an … Read more…

Car and Motorcycle Mounts for Apple iPad Air 2

The Apple iPad Air 2 is what you get when the Mini is too small and the iPad is too large. This is Apple’s latest generation in their very successful mid-size tablet category.  The iPad Air 2 has some nice performance improvements versus the original iPad Air.  The A8 processor is 1.4x faster than the prior model and you can stuff the iPad Air 2 with up to 128GB of memory versus the older model where it topped out at 32GB.  The graphics processor is 2.5x faster and that’s a significant performance boost.  The back camera is better too at 8 MP versus … Read more…

Tablet Mounts for Trucks and Rigs

Today’s topic is tablet mounts for trucks and rigs.  Mounting a device in a truck has unique requirements that differ from placing it in a car.  A truck has a much deeper reach to the windshield so a basic suction cup mount will prove to be inconvenient.  Most car mounts that are sold for tablets are a few inches long and will not suffice for use in a truck.  It’s difficult for a truck driver to reach forward that far so a suction mount that’s really long is what’s needed.  I have also found that truckers are more receptive to bolting a … Read more…
