The HandStand: The iPad Case With A Hand Strap



Similar to the Meglio whose Kickstarter we promoted yesterday, we'd be remiss if we didn't talk about The HandStand for your iPad. A velcro strap secures the iPad to the palm of your hand, and allows the iPad to rotate a full 360 degrees for comfort and mobility. It offers a slight typing angle with its studded back, and provides full protection against scratches and dings. It might not be as functional in the movie stand or hanging shelf department, but this could be a better alternative for iPad walk-a-roos. You can get one for $49.95 if you're holding on to your original iPad (an iPad 2 version is coming in the Spring).
