Gorillapod has a new challenger on the gadget holder/stand market. The Lethal Pro Stand by Zoll does not have an animal in his name, but it looks very much like one, and it's not just for looks. Whereas Joby reaches versatility by flexibility, Zoll prefers to do this by using animal-features.
It's made out of alloy and carbon fiber, which makes it a strong device that is very light weighted. It can be placed on alot of surfaces and can hold almost all gadgets with a screen, not only your iPod or iPhone! It is a little expensive, the basic model costs $130 in their online store.
