SAN FRANCISCO, CA – August 18, 2009 – Joby, the world renowned designer of the Gorillapod™ line of innovative camera tripods, is pleased to announce the Gorillamobile. Representing the first product in a new product line, the Gorillamobile promises unparalleled tripod compatibility for almost all mobile devices. Featuring the critically acclaimed ball-and-socket tripod legs that affix to and balance on any surface, the Gorillamobile provides consumers with a universal system for mounting any portable device. Photo-taking, video-recording, talking and movie-watching have never been easier!

The Gorillamobile is ideal for mobile phones, PDAs, MP3 players, portable gaming devices, GPS units, mini video cameras, pocket projectors and almost any other mobile device a consumer might want to utilize in a hands-free manner. The Gorillamobile pack includes a custom-engineered suction cup mounting system, two removable high-bond adhesive clips and the traditional universal camera adapter to ensure maximum compatibility. Whether the user needs a temporary hold or prefers something more permanent, the adapters provide the solution.

“The Gorillamobile will satisfy the overwhelming demand we’ve had to develop a portable and delightful product for the person seeking a tripod and flexible mounting system for all his mobile devices,” said Joby COO Forrest Baringer-Jones. “The Gorillamobile truly creates endless possibilities and is sure to become a ‘can’t leave home without it’ product.”
