This is just the type of desktop stand I have been looking for. Even though it was intended or iPhone, it works great with my Samsung Galaxy note 2. Holds the phone in both portrait and landscape mode.
The only downside would be that the base has no weight/grip to it. I found the stand sliding around on my desk with even the most gentile touch, until I secured it with double sided tape. Rubber feet and a few weights could work too.
