MobileMount promises to be the strongest iPhone and iPad mount out there

A new Kickstarter project has started up for MobileMount, a nice looking suction cup mount for the iPhone, iPad and other smartphones and tablets. The kickstand mount is produced by JR Sanches of J & M Company and promises to deliver the best mount your money can buy.

The MobileMount is a universal mount/kickstand for virtually any hand held device with a flat surface, like smartphones and tablets. Comprised of two twist-to-lock suction cups and one ball joint, this device's unique design allows for superior suction and durability.

The twist-to-lock suction cups are said to be the strongest out there and will secure your devices "for weeks", rather than days or hours from competing mounts. The universal design means you can use it on your iPhone or iPad, or any other flat-surfaced device. They also came up with a smart ball and joint system that allows for free horizontal and vertical rotation, making it a perfect setup for using your iPhone on your car dashboard or windshield as a GPS unit.

Pledges for the MobileMount start at just a buck and go all the way up to $700, but a pledge of just $25 will secure you a black MobileMount and 4 vinyl circles (for use with devices that have a matte surface) for delivery in January of next year. They're goal is $20,000, but they've already passed $10K so it doesn't look like this will have any trouble getting to market.

I'll personally be pledging $50 to get a couple of these bad boys -- one for my iPad 2 at the office and one for a windshield mount for my iPhone 4 in the car.

Check out the full video after the break!
