August 30, 2012, Woodstock, IL - Newer Technology, Inc. (NewerTech®), a leading developer of PC, Macintosh®, iPod®, iPhone®, and iPad® performance upgrades and accessories, today announced the NuGuard® Universal Tablet Rack, a Plug and Play 'BYOD' (Bring Your Own Device) storage and charging solution for technologically savvy classroom, office, retail, health care, and other multiple brand tablet computer user environments. Designed to accommodate nearly any tablet PC including Apple iPad, Samsung Galaxy, Google Nexus, and Asus Transformer models, the NuGuard Rack allows tablets even in thick, protective cases to slide easily into one of eight bays to store and charge.

Works with Any Protective Case
By providing ample room for popular cases like the Apple Smart Case®, as well as impact-resistant "armored" cases like the Gumdrop Drop Tech and Griffin Survivor, the NuGuard Rack can hold tablet PCs up to 10" D x 8" W x 1.5" H in size.

Store Multiple iPads Securely in a Minimal Footprint
The NuGuard Universal Tablet Rack's small footprint makes it easy to set up on a desktop, shelving unit or any other horizontal surface. Constructed from 100 percent recycled plastic, the unit is highly durable while non-skid rubber feet make sure it stays put. For added stability, pre-drilled anchor points enable the NuGuard Rack to be securely mounted to a flat horizontal surface or to additional NuGuard Racks when stacked with included anchoring hardware. To prevent unauthorized tablet use or theft, an optional stainless steel security bar and boron-carbide four-dial combination/keyed padlock are available.
