Perfect Curve today released its simple Socket Pocket wall charger for handheld devices. Just wide enough for the iPhone and full-size iPods, the holder fits next to a wall outlet and keeps most devices safely on a vertical surface while they charge rather than resting them on a counter or desk, where they might be damaged by a knock to the ground or crushed by a larger object. A bottom port also provides the space for the Dock Connector's power cable or any other AC adapter to run directly to the nearby outlet. [pricing corrected]
Each package ships with two of the pockets to provide room for a second device or spare items such as pens and accessories. Versions are available in white and tan to match most houses' interior decors, with two pockets available for $10.
