I had a chance to check out the Agility Tablet System from Otterbox at CES 2015, and I was very glad to try out the system for myself. I have a ton of it that I need to review, and it includes the Agility Tablet System Shell, 10-inch Portfolio, Dock, and Wall-Mount.
I’ll see if I can explain the Agility Tablet System. You know how there are portfolios, docks, mounts, for tablets? The Agility is essentially a system in place for all kinds of tablets, to make it easier on the user.
The Shell is essentially that, a shell. It protects the back of the tablet, and that circular hole isn’t there to show off a tablet fruit logo, but it is a magnetic circle. That circle is the secret of the Agility Tablet System. I’ll discuss that more later, but right now, let me give you a price for the iPad Air as it can be purchase here for $39.95.
Now, let’s talk about the Portfolio. If you have enough experience with tablets, then you know that Portfolio cases are a way of protecting your tablet like a folder. Some of them have a keyboard, but this does not.
What it does have is the magnetic circle to lock on the Shell so you can view your tablet. By the way, you can easily disconnect and rotate your tablet in portrait and landscape mode.
Man, this Agility Tablet System with the Shell and Portfolio sure is handy. You can get the Black Leather 10 inch Portfolio for the iPad for about $69.95 on the Otterbox site.
What is great is it isn’t like a portfolio so there isn’t just a few angles, but pretty much any angle. The angle is pretty solid, so it won’t be slipping any time soon. Like the Portfolio, it can also spin into portrait and landscape mode quickly.
Now, unlike the last two Agility Tablet System products that I described, the Dock is pretty much good for any size of Portfolio or Shell. Again, the secret is in the magnetic circle. It can be purchased on the Otterbox site for $49.95.
I mentioned earlier how the Dock is a permanent place, but the Wall Mount is practically the most permanent thing you can get. Seriously, there is a 3M adhesive so you can put it on just about anything, and then just put your tablet with its Shell on that place on the wall.
Yes, I have seen products like this before, which is what makes it all the more useful. After all, our tablets are starting to be our link with a lot of things. Why not keep them on the wall? You can get that 360 degree viewing as well. You should be able to acquire the Wall Mount on the Otterbox site for $29.95.
All in all, Otterbox gets a gold medal for usefulness and usability when it comes to the Agility Tablet System.
