Glif tripod mount for the iPhone doubles as a kickstand
Their first product, the Glif, is a remarkably versatile mount for the iPhone 4. It attaches to any standard tripod with its 1/4-inch 20-thread adapter. From there, the iPhone can be positioned in portrait or landscape mode.
When you want a kickstand, the Glif can also hold your device securely in portrait or landscape mode. It is made out of a rubberized plastic that won't scratch your beloved phone. It is also small and light enough that you can easily carry it in your pocket.
So what's the bad news? As of now, the Glif only works with the iPhone 4, and it isn't compatible with cases. They say the Glif will still work with skinned iPhones (Zagg, etc.), but it might be a squeeze. It costs $20, and they are doing there best to have it ship in time for the Holidays (no promises).

The glif is nice but does have its drawbacks. My company, PC Treasures, makes a product called the GrippIt! that I think gives the glif a run for its money. Not only does it cost ten dollars less, but, unlike the glif, it works with any phone and lets you leave your phone in its case when using it. Check it out here:http://www.digitaltreasures.co
