I will not mention how I could not resist buying an iPad while visiting a friend in NYC, but I will say that while I love using it on the couch, when watching movies I like to have have it standing on a table or desk. When I bought it the kind Apple store seller offered me a cover in fake-leather (very disappointing!) for just 40USD that could also be used as a stand. I was not impressed at all and decided not to get it and save the 40 dollars for a later occasion.
When I was at home the other day I noticed an unused plate stand that seemed perfect and in fact IT IS perfect for my iPad. Here is a picture:
Also, you can find as many as you wish online and if you get it in clear plastic like mine you won’t even notice it. Looks perfect to me!
