CES 2012: iPad gets retail power



Griffin Technology today announced the availability of their Kiosk for iPad at the Consumer Electronics Show. The Kiosk tough enough to withstand intense, everyday use in retail establishments, restaurants, medical settings and more.

‚Griffin believes businesses should enjoy the same level of design and innovation our retail customers do,‚ said J. Curtis, Director of Griffin’s B2B Product Development. ‚We built both versions of the Kiosk to be robust and secure enough for use in high traffic areas. Griffin’s Kiosk not only looks elegant but will be right at home in museums, hotels, restaurants and classrooms.‚ The Kiosk provides protection and security while maintaining access to the iPad tablet’s Multi-Touch display. The iPad is locked in place by an impact-resistant ABS housing and included security screws. Additionally the Kiosk has a high-strength, flexible joint giving users the freedom to adjust the angle for optimal viewing and returns the iPad to an upright, centered position when finished. The Griffin Kiosk also provides protection for the included power cable by completely enclosing the dock connector and routing all cabling through the center of the steel arm. The Kiosk’s base bolts to the floor or tabletop with included hardware, for a complete, secure solution. Three faceplates come standard for optional access to the home button and camera. The Kiosk displays an iPad or iPad 2 in portrait or landscape orientation, and is available in two height options: Floor Mount (50″ to center of iPad, $299), or Table Mount (12″” to center of iPad, $199). Griffin’s Kiosk for iPad will be available this March.
