    How many times have you wanted your cell phone more visible on your desk instead of laying flat where you can't really see what is going on like incoming messages etc. Or to use as a clock or weather station? Check this out. You can make most phones work on this stand:

    Since I can't find anything local made for this Dell Streak 5, here is a tilt-stand I found at the Barnes & Noble book store.
    Perfect size for it with the gap for the cord at the bottom.
    It is a stand for small paperback books. $13 Barnes & Noble.

    Here is the info on getting yours:

    Barnes & Noble sells our silver-black Bookhug™ in stores and online (look for a blue-silver box in stores).
    We sell both our silver-black Bookhug , and our violet-plum Bookhug online at: www.bookhug.com , accepting payment by PayPal.
    We're getting good feedback from customers who really like our Bookhug to hold their KINDLES and other eReaders, notebook computers, and more--even framed pictures. Some people put a small piece of craft foam to the inside of Bookhug's tabs to protect their 'electronics' (double-sided tape would hold the foam in place).
    http://www.bookhug.com/

    For those of you in Europe, you can order it here from Serious Readers:

    I've had it awhile now and cans say I really like it on my desk.
    Good angle so you always see it from anywhere in the room.
    the cutout is perfect for that cable too.

    Great stand for the Dell Streak 5. Went to the Borders.com website and couldn't track it down (tried searching under Tilt-Stand, Book Stand, Stand etc.). Also tried Amazon but no joy.

    You wouldn't happen to have an item number would you?

    Many thanks.

    I threw the box away, so don't know the number. But try going to the local Barnes & Noble bookstore and look where they keep the book lights/lamps/holders.

    Book Hug, great name, no wonder I couldn't find it under book stand. I'll order it online as I'm in the UK, and Borders Bookstore has ceased trading over here.

    Thanks for your help, much appreciated.

    Excuse me... it was Barnes & Noble bookstore, not Borders. I got them mixed up as I go to both.
    I have the online links to order them in the previous links.

    Thanks for the update, the Book Hug has now been ordered (thank you PayPal), and will be winging its way (literally) in the near future.

    Great find, thank you.

    Quick Update

    I received an e-mail from those very helpful people at Bookhug.com, advising me that the shipping I had included in the order was only for the USA & Canada, and giving me the option to send an additional payment via PayPal.

    They also said that the Book Hug is sold in the UK through SeriousReaders.com, and assuring me that it would be an original Book Hug, and not an imitation. The link is Bookhug on Serious Readers

    I have now ordered the Book Hug from Serious Readers, and have had my PayPal payment refunded.

    Bookhug.com are nice people to do business with. Great service!
