Abstract: A dual-orientation stand for supporting a user input device in two device orientations is provided. The stand may comprise a first planar surface configured to rest on a support surface in a first stand orientation, and a second planar surface extending from the first planar surface at an obtuse angle. A third planar surface is spaced from the second planar surface and extends from the first planar surface. A concave portion between the second and third surfaces is configured to hold the device in a first device orientation when the stand is in the first stand orientation. The second planar surface is configured to support the device in a second device orientation when the stand is in a second stand orientation in which the third planar surface rests on the support surface.
