and keep it well away from your
Protective Cases and stands for hands off support
We just got our iPad2 ... wanted the Blue Smart Cover from Apple ... none in stock locally ... so we picked up the Targus VuScape from Best Buy... roughly $40. Same price as Smart Cover ... just doesn't include the magnetic on/off feature ... which I really like. DYI can fix that however.
What is really nice about the VuScape is three standup angles (the iPad's always in the case) ... setup is very simple and EZ. The slightly padded back adds to holding comfort in Portrait orientation. It also has beautiful corner protection which the Smart Cover does not. Also it has long edge and rear protection which is highly desirable as well.
The only other case I would even consider is the Zaggmate with built-in bluetooth keyboard. If you need a mechanical keyboard for lots of typing speed and accuracy ... this is the one. $99 ... Available mid April for iPad2 ... IMHO.:)
