ELECTRONIC DRIVE STAND

by Terry Bale

TAKE YOUR HANDS OFF THAT FORTI!!

  The wireless revolution has risen to its highest peak. Industry has created an endless desire for portable terminal communication.

  Like Motorola's-Forte Wireless Compad-most of the portable terminals on the market today have optional docking stations that allow the device to be used in a vehicle. Due to the harsh environment of a motor vehicle, docking stations are stringently designed with high cost materials. This makes a docking station an unrealistic option for use outside the motor vehicle.

  When a user removes the Forte from the motor vehicle and wish to use the device in the office or at home, they have no way to position the Forte for hands-free operation. A desktop stand has been

designed to help eliminate this problem.

Some of the features of this stand include:

* Rugged design to support the weight and size of the Forte.

l

"Non-slip" feet which allows your device to sit safely on any flat or slightly elevated surface.

* Stand is adjustable for easy viewing under any lighting conditions.

l

Quick connect/disconnect from Forte.

* Compact for convenient storage when not in use.

The following illustration provides a conceptual view of this design.
