    Anybody have a "kick stand" for their *6600?

    I was curious to know if anybody if anybody has a stand or something to place the unit on a table to watch a movie. Something like the stand behind a picture frame.

    It would be nice to use when on an airplane, a desk, etc. I watch all my movies in portrait mode, so using the dock as a portable device is out of the question.

    Thanks!

    I posted the same question a couple of months back. I finally found a great solution in using one of the USB output battery charging packs (which has a built in charger with a plug that pops out of the bottom). There is a cover over the batteries that flips up vertically. I set my PPC6601 on top of the battery pack, against the flipped-up cover, and it sits at the perfect angle for viewing. I plug my USB sync cable in while it is sitting there, and when I step off a cross country flight (after watching three movies), my battery is still at full charge.

    Definatley a nice option. I may pick one up just to have it in my stash of goodies.

    I'd still like to find a simple stand. I guess I could check out Home Depot and see if there's anything I can make.

    I'm thinking of something that would wrap around the battery and the stand would literally look like a frame stand. It would have to be a very thin piece of material to fit between the gap of the battery and the 6600.

    I got this from harrietcarter.com:

    I had to pry the arms just a little farther apart to make the phone fit properly, but that was easy to do. Now it works fine.
