I would use a tripod, but the cases that have a tripod mount are expensive. The cheapest/most appealing case I have seen is a kickstarter, which means the developer is trying to get money to get the tooling to make it, so basically its on pre order

Doesn't say whether it supports iPad 2?

It's just a clamp so it should work with pretty much any similarly sized tablet - looking at the images, there's nothing between an iPad 1 or 2 that should make it specific to just one of them.

A standard document stand works fine.

As I have just told someone else,I find my smart cover when rolled up into the stand is perfect in bed,steady it with one hand,I have stylus in the other.

I just ordered one! After using my iPad for 4 months on my lounge chair, I need to try something to relieve my sore left thumb. Like the inventor I have not seen another good solution yet. I'm hoping this pillow type device will solve the problem. I'll be sure to post my review.

I have the Joby GorillaMobile ori. I absolutely love this case. It has several different positions and its pretty stable even on a soft, uneven bed. You can position it different ways for the different ways you lay down and use your iPad.

Can't link anything because my post-count is too low, but its at: joby.com/gorillamobile/ori-2/

I also use the Joby Ori and like it a lot for reading in bed as well as a comfortable angle at a table. Also great for when you want to show things to a group.

Weird looking thing, but sort of cool too. A guess a person can't have enough cool accessories :)

Most people have a headboard and a bed frame...like my Ikea one, I can see multiple places to mount that thing to.
