Not too Robust Joint Support – Universal Car Windshield Swivel Mount for iPod/GPS/MP4/Cell Phone (6.5"~10" Devices) Reviews

The Galaxy Tab can be mounted onto it and it holds it quite well.As the plastic ball joint is rather weak, the locked position will tend to droop over vibrations and bumps which the car experiences.
Will not support the ipad though it can fit into the jaws of the mounting. The weight is just too much for the ball joint.
The weakest part of the design is the plastic housing of the ball joint. It is small and does not secure well. Put too much force into it and I'll bet the joint will fracture.
Onlu useful for tablets which are from 7 to 10 inces. But the weight of the tablet must not be more than the Galaxy Tab for the joint to support it. Even with the Tab, it needs some adjustment after awhile as the position will droop under its own weight, with the car's vibrations/movements)
