The UX90 comes with a stand. The UX50 and UX180 don't, but come with the docking cradle. You can order the docking cradle (which I did) for the UX90 (or for an extra), but you can't order a stand.

The stand is essentially a tri-fold plastic piece that fits on the back of the UX in the same slots that fit into the cradle. Since the fulcrum-point is at the center of the back of the UX, it doesn't have the issue the medallahk mentioned.

I came across a website recently that listed a stand for the UX for about $9...unfortunately don't remember which one right now...will try to find a link and post it here if I can find it again....

So it should be possible to get one...

Thats no good. To inform other people, the Australian model comes with both the stand and the docking station.

Here is a more simple flip stand, made of an IPOD Shuffe plastic stand. It is also usable when the UX is in the docking station! (pic by Shino-Aviさん).

Here are some pics with a very simple plexi stand I had made based on the OP's idea. I think metal would have been better (like he did). The plexi isn't stable enough I think and unfortunately the UX is only supported by the stand: no part of the UXon the sides touches the table and so has less support. I am not crazy about this plexi one. It is a first attempt.


It's an unmodified IPOD stand. It uses a double sided tape to fix it to the device. There is no harm to the device. There are two within the package and there are for other devices too.

But you have cool stand too! Very simple! And its plastic and won't do any harm to the UX!
Wow, that keyboard is cool! What is it???

Has any one managed to make a stand that allows you to have the AC adaptor or video dongle pluged in?

Hi Gordon,

how about this one? This one was cheap and also supports the power plug and network adapter plugged in.

Or this one?

Plastic multi stand. On the back is something like a screw, so the diagonal level can be ajusted.
