No matter what kind of tablet you use, holding one for an extended period of time while playing games, reading, watching movies, or web browsing will make your arms tired. And typing out long emails can prove difficult if you're using one hand to hold the tablet and typing with the other, but laying the tablet down flat on your lap or table isn't much better.

Enter TAB Rests. Designed to work with any tablet, this simple foam base provides wrist support and holds your tablet at an angle ideal for typing, reading, gaming, and more! You can use TAB Rests on your lap or a table/desk, and it's great for kids and adults alike. They aren't super bulky, so you can easily pack one in a bag for travel or stow one in the car for the kids on those long road trips. I like that if you have a case on your tablet, you don't have to remove it to use the TAB Rest, they can work together! You can pick up a TAB Rest at the link below for just $14.95 (plus s&h), and at that price why not get one to keep and one to give away as a gift?

We have 10 TAB Rests to give away this weekend, courtesy of newPCgadgets. To enter, leave a comment below letting us know how you plan to use a TAB Rest if you win, or if you plan to give it as a gift let us know who in your life can benefit from having one of these in their life. We're keeping this one short and sweet, so you'll want to get your entries in before midnight Sunday. One entry per person please!

sunny231

i'm constantly on the go and my blackberry playbook im always using as im out. One thing that most frustrates me is having to type for long periods of time and play games because my arms start to hurt by keeping it while playing games and typing is near to impossible as every keystroke entered my tablet sways left to right on my lap. With this support and support to my wrist it'll improve my user experience and love my playbook tablet even more! please help out! i would love to add this to my accessories and use this every time im out. All day and all night i could take advantage of this TAB Rest and make my user experience so much better and comfortable at the same time. PLEASE!

atit_s

I read a lot of ebooks on the kindle and comics on my BB Playbook. this would be a super accessory which would help me tremendously.

ORMojo

While the article is very accurate about how the tabrest will improve on-screen typing in many postures, it will be especially helpful when I am using my blue tooth keyboard and need to rest the PB screen at a good viewing angle. And then it can double as an orthopedic head/neck rest when I doze off . . .

No Way! I've just gotten my books for the semester on my playbook and take it everywhere to study and read!

Thanks!

umbrau44

I would use it on the couch, watching TV.

Ramsy

I plan to use the Tab Rest with my Playbook and TV remote while watching TV. The Tab Rest looks big enough to allow me to keep both items right in front of me at all times for quick access.

matt62

If this came with a hood of some sort to block the glare of my wife's e-reader at night it would be perfect for her so the light didn't keep me awake when she reads in bed. So, since it has no hood, I will use it to read on my PB or enable me to type more easily as I revise and create documents for work. The PB is great, but I have a tough time getting the right angle to comfortably type and there is not always something handy that works. I think the price is fair for this accessory, but I would love to win one! Have a great Christmas everyone!!

herberg

I will be giving it as a gift to my wife who has Lupus, an autoimmune disease. She loves to read but cannot hold her kindle for very long as her hands start to hurt due to her disease

QueXiaQuanton

Wow! Really? A piece of foam that holds your tablet up for 15 bucks! This is something you'd see in the iPad/sucker section of Target.

There's a sucker born every minute...

Hairbear1954

Actually would love to win this one for my wife! Got her a Kindle Fire for Christmas and this would be a nice addition to it!

Hope, I hope!

QriTiKaL

sweet deal, could use this for more then a tablet

gonzotwins

I could so use this at home now that I no longer have a home office and must essentially use the couch to work after hours. Excellent opportunity, CB!
