Joby unveils Gorillamobile 3G/3GS tripod

Joby Gorillamobile 3G/3GS

Joby updated its defining tripod line this afternoon by launching the Gorillamobile 3G/3GS. The add-on preserves Joby's distinctive trick of using three bendable arms that lets the Gorillamobile cling to many surfaces, such as a bike's handlebars, but adds a removable case that both holds an iPhone 3G/3GS in place and detaches to serve as basic protection in a pocket. Uniting the two gives either Apple device a more stable platform for photos or videos without needing a flat surface for a regular tripod.

Although focused on the iPhone, the revised Gorillamobile isn't locked to the Apple hardware and has a universal camera adapter to work with much more conventional photography equipment. A pair of residue-free adhesive clips give an added level of stability when the surface is too slippery for grip alone to work.

Joby expects the new tripod to be on US store shelves now and estimates a price between $40 and $45.
