  • Lilitab iPad Kiosk Is Simple and Functional



    Apple made quite the big deal about utilizing the iPad 2 as a product information display as part of the Apple Store overhaul last year. Utilizing the iPad as an interactive display or kiosk hasnít been lost on the rest of the retail world, which is why Lilitabís iPad kiosk might become common place.

    The Lilipab Standard is a simple and portable. The white design wonít fit everywhere, and looks more porcelain than high-tech. But, the iPad appears secure, and according to TUAW is easily installed. The base plate can be bolted to floor, just in case store owners or event operators need to fend off nefarious patrons and customers.

    The front-plate that secures the iPad can even come with or without a camera hole, as well as with or without a hole for access to the home button. All of this is held in place with security screws, and can be accessed or changed with a supplied Allen wrench. The ability to limit access to the home button allows merchants and even operators to lock in the App desire app without fear of it switching. A nice design touch is the conscious effort to keep metal away from the iPadís RF antennas.

    Those worried about their iPad dying during the middle of the day will need to supply their own iPad AC adapter and Apple charger extension cord. According to TUAW this is the only tricky part of the installation.

    The ability to get branding kits from Lilitab add a level of customization to the mix, but Iím sure the DIY people out there will have a field day with this kiosk. The kiosk comes in white or black and retails for $495.

      ^^ lol

      I really don't think they are aiming to sell this to the casual home user.
      Its aimed at business owners with shops / exhibition stands etc.

      Not some guy standing it in his lounge! lol

      Doesn't look like a joke. Just your average over priced accessory just because it works with an Apple product.
      The TUAW article is dated March 31st and http://www.lilitab.com/ will go so far as to take your credit card details.

      It's worth it if your business generates $1000's due to it.

      The problem with this though is that unless apple releases a special buisiness/retail addition of ios allowing for an app to open but not close on the touch of a button this concept really wouldn't work except on jailbroken iOS! And you can really see that happening can't you! Because if your like me I would simply go to the app strore download angry birds space and f**k buying the shopping I'd play that all day instead...
