How to choose the right tablet case and mount combo

Guest Editor | Yo Jen Huang
Now that you have purchased a new tablet for business or personal use then what’s next (iPad 6th Gen., iPad Mini, Surface Pro, Surface Go, Samsung Tab A or Tab E) ? The idea or even thought about protection and where to position the tablet usually comes as an after thought when something bad happens. Accidents as simple as dropping it, splashing it with coffee, exposing it to bad weather while in the field, or simply misplacing it because you did not have a home base to store it. It’s strange to think that after investing hundreds if not thousands of dollars businesses don’t make purchasing a protective case or a mount to position the tablet for effective use a priority. For important purchases like a house, car or even TV we always think about insurance at the time of purchase but with tablets, we tend to not consider it upfront.


If you are still reading this blog then I assume 1 of 2 things. You either just purchased a new tablet and you’re proactively researching for the best-case solutions possible to protect your investment or you have fallen victim of some type of mishap I mentioned from earlier. Either way, you are in luck. The Joy Factory makes a wide variety of protective case and tablet mount solutions that work for different industries, but now picking the right one for you, your company and employees takes some evaluation and examination. We would like to lend a hand in helping you find the right solution by walking you through a few key steps to determine which tablet mounting solution best fits your environment and needs
