iGrip Headrest kit for the BB PlayBook

With the iGrip Headrest Kit for the PlayBook, backseat passengers can enjoy watching movies and listening to music in comfort. The PlayBook is securely attached to the headrest of the vehicle with the included case. The easy-to-use knobs for vertical and horizontal adjustment make sure the optimal viewing angle is always possible.

The Review

I have three children who are 4, 13 and 16. They can never, and I do mean NEVER, agree on what to watch on our car's 2 screen DVD player when traveling. While making the move from Illinois to Colorado this winter, I got to try out the iGrip Headrest kit for the BlackBerry PlayBook. I figured the older two could watch a movie on the car DVD player while my 4 year old watched a couple of her movies on my PlayBook (she's a veteran PB user so, no, I don't worry she'll damage it). The Headrest Tablet Kit is the answer to my prayers!

The side ports are still easily accessible although the thickness of the case means you'll have to remove it any time you want to dock it on your charging cradle.

The iGrip Headrest kit also has a smaller scale easel that makes typing on your PlayBook a breeze when lying on a flat surface.

  • Sturdy construction offers protection to your device while traveling & simple the simple installation make it easy for anyone to use.


  • You literally have to pry the included case off. With the case being so thick, you'll need to remove it any time you're wanting to dock your device. Clamp won't open wide enough to fit all headrest bars.

The Bottom Line

If you'd like to use your BlackBerry PlayBook as a media center while traveling in a vehicle, the iGrip Headrest Tablet Kit is a great option.
