    I saw a post on Gizmodo asking their commentors how they hold their iPad so I thought I'd ask this great community:

    Not holding one yet but soon. I was looking at your cases they look nice. One suggestion I would like to give. I would like to see a horizontal leather stand/ flip case. No one seems to be addressing this option which in my mind is the best way to view a film from what I've seen.

    LOL, not sure what that means, but I too mostly hold mine in landscape unless it is sitting in it's dock, looking all sweet beside the iMac 24" I must say, it doesn't even look the least bit jealous either.

    Also it's hard to use the dock with the Apple cover on the iPad. Tomorrow I get from UPS the keyboard dock but it will most likely be the same.

    Has any one seen these at the local Best Buy? They use them to display their iPads on the table and make a great base. Stylish too! I sure wouldn't mind getting a few of these myself, put some cool LED's in or near them for effect and I would be all set.

    UPDATE: NM; I see now what you meant, the CIMO case... doh!

    Wow, those look like nice stuff to have around the house. I wonder where it's possible to get something like that? Someone needs to make a DIY, stat!

    Landscape with left index finger used for support between the apple case and iPad. Similar to how I hold my Sony ereaders.

    Today I had a long wait for my wife during her gall bladder surgery. I really would have loved an iPad over my laptop. However, I recognize that while a lot lighter, there are still going to be issues on how to hold it for long periods. I may have to experiment with some different devices to find something that will work.

    Landscape - index finger on the back and thumb grasping the bottom lip of the front. I can type quick enough with one hand most of the time.
