    I was recently really close to buying the Targus Versavu 360 rotating stand case for my iPad 2. It retails for about $55. Then I ran across the Poetic Swivelbook Leather Case Folio (Cost $19.99). There were only a few reviews on it, both great. They said its exactly like the Targus, except it has to added features: 3 viewing angles instead of Targus's 2, and the wake up feature like Apple's smart cover. Anybody know anything about this case?? I'm really curious about it, and would love to get it if its legit and not crap.

    The Poetic Swivelbook Leather Case Folio is available on Amazon.com

    Thanks for any help,

    Adam

    I have the poetic swivelbook it's better than the targus versavue and cheaper.
    The poetic swivelbook also has the magnets for the auto on/off feature, the targus one doesn't.
    Nice little case until I get my otterbox defender case.

    It's got that grey micro fiber on the inside flap and has blue stitching on the outside.

    I had somebody tell me the stand part isnt very stable. You find that to be true?

    Any case with the slots isnt that stable thats what i noticed but its stable enough that when i put it on the table it doesnt fall.
    I think its just preference.

    3 view angles instead of 2?? Landscape, portrait and...? Diagonal? Upside down?

    xD

    Just a hunch, but it might also mean viewing angles, I.e. that you can tilt the iPad into 3 positions from upright to backward leaning.
