The Search for an iPad Stand?

posted in: Miscellaneous 0

I haven’t even confirmed the purchase of an iPad case and I’m already looking at another accessory: a stand.

Whilst in the home, my iPad will be as nude as they day it was removed from its white box shaped womb. I haven’t encountered any hazards in the home that would warrant a case.

So what to do about the whole “propping up” role my case was going to cover?

At first I was considering this Elago P2 aluminum stand:

elago-p2-stand

It looks like something Jobs would have approved. Very slick and elegant, but also very restrictive. It sits at a fixed angle and serves the role of a display stand more than a functional one.

Then I searched some more on iLounge (which is an excellent resource for this kind of thing) and discovered the Belkin Flipblade Adjust:

belkin-flipblade-adjust

It’s elegant, but in a more functional respect. It’s still made out of¬†aluminium, but it also features padded contact points to prevent scratches on the tablet. It’s also appears quite adjustable and can collapse to a relatively small footprint for transport around the house.

The Elago P2 is only available via Amazon.com which means shipping costs and duty fees will inflate the price a bit. The Flipblade Adjust is available via Amazon.ca which makes this decision even easier.
