Joby has introduced its Gorillamobile flexible tripod mount for portable devices such as the iPod and iPhone. Similar to the company’s Gorillapod lineup of flexible camera tripods, the Gorillamobile features three legs made up of over two dozen bendable, rotating joints that allow the mount to wrap securely around nearly any surface. Instead of a permanent camera adapter, however, the Gorillamobile comes with three types of quick-release adapters—a universal camera adapter, a custom-engineered suction cup, and removable high-bond adhesive clips—all of which can be securely fastened to the mount using a locking ring on the tripod’s head. Joby’s Gorillamobile flexible tripod mount is available now and sells for $30.

I would be interested in this if it had better options then a suction cup or adhesive clip.

Seriously? You expect people to glue a clip on the back of their iPhones?

I would think someone that would want to attach their iPhone/iPod to their bikes in this manner would most likely have have them in a case of some sort.  I know I would, and I wouldn’t have a problem adhering a clip to the back of a case.  I love the Gorillapod tripod I have for my camera.

This new Gorillamobile, is just a new marketing strategy for something that Joby already had out called the Go-Go.  If you look at the spec’s and search the internet for the Joby Gorillapod Go-Go, they are the same thing.
