Default Stand for Galaxy S3

Are there any simple stands available for the Galaxy S3 so I can watch movies on the train for example ?

There are a lot of cases which have a stand build-in but I don't really want a case.

I found a suction cup kinda thing but that falls off constantly - just a matter of time until that thing flies across the train cabin.

There are also spider-web-leg deals (can't describe them better) but they are too high / unstable.

Any ideas ?

Certainly a nice idea - but not quite what I am after. Thank you though.

I prefer to put it on those small tables on the train rather than holding for the journey (1hr40 each way).

I thought it might work. Open and use like a kickstand?

Oh I see now - yea, technically works i guess - but the adhesive thing is offputting

Yeah I know. Fugly as hell that's for sure. How about a desktop business card holder? Kinda bulky to carry around but it's cheap. 8-)

I use a two-part case thing without the rubbery part it comes with. It is really nice cuz it has slots for the micro usb and has a couple levels. And it was only like $5

Here

Turns out the price has gone up since I bought it. But I just remove the rubbery part and use the stand. works nice would recommend

I just make my own stand using scissors and a business/index card.

Like the business card idea

Did find one at the end though :

Amazon.com: iCarpus Stand for iPhone, iPod, and More - Mount - Retail Packaging - Graphite: Cell Phones & Accessories

Seems to tick all the boxes. Especially the rubber lining .. Found a cheaper metal one, which was nice, but it didn't have rubber feet so it kept sliding around on the train's table
