Flexible TabletTail: Whale Kit provides a versatile handle and stand, now available free of duties and shipping

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, Feb. 5, 2013 /CNW/ – Octa™ (https://www.octa.com), a creator of innovative tablet accessories, today announced the launch of its first product, the TabletTail: Whale Kit, on Amazon Canada. This flexible tablet handle and stand, which has previously been available only through U.S. retailers, has had a strong following in Canada, despite the high costs of international duties and shipping.

“We’re happy to be able to offer faster, more economical ways to purchase a TabletTail. By expanding our distribution network, we can pass on the savings to our customers,” said Prometheus Trotsky, the founder of Octa.

The Whale Kit, which was launched at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, provides a sturdy and adaptable stand. It connects to your tablet using powerful vacuum suction technology, and it works on any tablet or e-reader with a smooth, non-porous surface. The WhaleTail’s tail and fins bend for a wide range of portrait and landscape positions and can be transformed instantly into a comfortable handle.
