    Griffin has a new aluminum A-frame stand on their web site that has potential. It will hold the iPad in vertical and horizontal orientation. It will allow charging with or without a cover on. It can hold it in an upright position for viewing, or at a low angle for typing. It looks well designed. Price? That is another thing. $50

    I don't know. It is a new product and interesting. My read is that it is possible, but before I would shell out the money, I would find out more. It is a very elegant design that I find appealing, but it will be a long time before I would be in the market.

    The stand looks cool. And i bet it would make your iPad a lot easier to use when typing.

    just took a look at this at the apple store... Nice stand, very heavy...but, $50 for a stand/easel?

    me thinks this would work for the rare times i need one:

    Looks very sturdy but also looks like it takes up alot of realestate. Don't think I'll be needing anything that big. Can't say for sure but I think the apple dock will be fine for me.

    I like this idea a lot more than spending $50 for a stand. Nice one. Still, it's not very elegant. I'd like to be able to keep my iPad on a shelf on my entertainment center and use it as a digital photo frame while it's charging. I also don't want to use the Apple dock connector since I'd rather display photos in landscape mode. The only one I've found is the skadoosh stand, but it's not out until May and no price has been announced.
    Has anybody come across any nice stands for the iPad that aren't $50?
