Veyl Products is expanding the consumer availability of its ePillow, a pillow-based tablet PC accessory that results in a more ergonomic user experience.
The product will now be available at wholesale cost to retailers, college bookstores, and international distributors. It is available in chocolate brown or deep black at epillow.net, will be available in multiple materials and colors by the end of Q4 2011.
The ePillow will accommodate an iPad, iPad 2, Samsung Galaxy, HTC Flyer Android, Acer Iconia Tab A500, HP Touch Pad and various other tablet PCs on the market today. The ePillow is designed to help reduce neck aches, muscle fatigue, eye strain, and more.
"After we received an overwhelming response from consumers, extensive national news coverage and a surge in sales just days after we officially launched the ePillow, we decided the product demand required a more extensive sales channel and we our now reaching out to our retail partners to make this happen," said Renee Anderson, co-owner of Veyl Products, LLC and designer of the ePillow.
The ePillow is constructed of soft polyester with a suede feel and is double-stitched for durability. The new ePillows are constructed of various materials, each having its own unique feel. A vinyl "ledge" surrounds the outside to hold an iPad in place either horizontally or vertically. It comes with a soft flexible handle and also features a built-in pocket to hold reading glasses, ear buds, or various other items.
"With recent studies showing that the satisfaction of iPad owners appears to be increasing with their usage of the device, and that roughly 10 percent of iPad users enjoy them for five or more hours each day, ergonomic accessories are becoming a vital part of the iPad experience," said Anderson. "Veyl is eager to answer the needs of tablet PC owners with an accessory that is universal to men and women, extremely mobile, and a pleasure to use. We also plan to bring additional designs to market for the Blackberry Playbook, Nook, Kindle and other eReaders and tablets by the end of the year."
