Really didn't expect to like this so much. Bought it based on a recent newsletter... seemed like an interesting product. Package arrived next day (got a text message telling me it shipped too!). Comes in a simple box, once I got it out it seemed to be of reasonable quality. After a few hours use I love it! - Holds my T-Mobile G1 perfectly in landscape and portrait mode. Perfect viewing angle for the screen. The card reader and USB work fine, but don't really need to use this that often. Even when it's not plugged in to the computer would recommend this simple as a great phone holder for any office or home. Most of my colleagues are ordering one too!
Only thing is after a few days it seems to get less "sticky" (one star knocked off for that)

DESK GENIE CHARGING STAND
I have bought many items from Mobile Fun over the past 18months, from blue tooth head phones, cases, cables, etc. The latest purchase of the desktop genie was a very good buy. It has a non slip surface which holds the phone/tablet in place it has the ability to use a charger in back as well as two USB2 ports on the right hand side and memory card readers for camera or laptop/phone ETC on the left, though not always required a very handy item to have anyway. On the whole along with all the various connections for I phone/tablet or any other smart device you want to connect, this turned out to be an excellent purchase and the price was very good as well, I would give it a score of 9 out of 10, and will certainly use Mobile Fun again for future purchases I'm going to need. Thank you Alan

This is an excellent stand for the Blackberry 9320. It holds the phone well and looks good too. Cant say much more than it is a really good product.
Excellent service from Mobile Fun - Delivery was speedy and items were well packaged.
The Desk Genie is the only phone holder you will ever need.
The Desk Genie gives you a phone holder, universal charger, USB hub and an 8-in-1 card read.
Desk Genie non-slip
Designed to hold any device in position, it uses a special material which grips the device. It is even designed so if your phone is vibrating frantically, it will still remain in place. The holder is able to do such a feat thanks to the special surface, which is made from a high tech rubber material. Your phone is held so firmly you’ll think it has been glued down – but there is no sticky residue on the phone or on the Genie. The Desk Genie can hold your phone in optimum viewing positions to read emails, watch videos and play games.
As dust slowly builds up over time, the adhesive properties reduce. Simply wipe the pad with a little water and then with a clean cloth (be sure not to use solvents or alcohol wipes). This will restore the Desk Genie's magic holding properties.
The Desk Genie is made from high quality materials and finished to the highest levels. This means it will not look out of place at home or in the office, while it holds your precious devices.
The Desk Genie also allows you to charge your phone. One of the added benefits is the multiple tips it comes with, so you can literally charge any phone while the phone sits on the Desk Genie. The cable simply plugs into the back of the Desk Genie and the other end goes straight into the phone. The tips included also work on iPods and selected sat navs and MP3 players. If one of the included tips doesn't support your phone, no need to worry as you can use your existing USB charging cable with the Desk Genie to charge your device.
The Desk Genie features 2 USB ports along the bottom. You can use the USB as a hub for your PC or laptop computer, which means you can slot memory sticks and Bluetooth dongles in to transfer all your files on to your computer. The Genie is perfect if your PC or laptop does not have many USB ports. The USB ports can be used to charge items including Bluetooth headsets, sat navs, MP3 players - as well as letting you have fun with your favourite USB gadgets. The USB hub can also be used to sync with your phone or music device.
The Desk Genie not only holds your mobile phone firmly in place, it also contains 4 memory card slots - which allow you to transfer files at high speed between the card reader and your PC. Just connect to any PC, insert a memory card and away you go. Not only is the device compatible with Micro SD cards, but it will work with 8 other memory cards including SD and M2 cards. The card reader unlike others on the market will allow you to use both Micro SD and M2 cards without adaptors.
The Desk Genie will still hold your phone plugged in or not. The USB cable is 90cm long and is designed to be used next to a PC / laptop (or simply purchase a USB extension cable), however if you want to use it on your bedside table, kitchen or anywhere else where a PC is not close by and you still want to charge your phones - simply purchase a USB Mains Adaptor.

"Wonderful service, ordered very late afternoon received it next morning. A cornucopia of gadgets and accessories you didn't know you needed, and wonder how you managed without for so long. A first time user who will definitely be returning."
