This is the stand I wish we could have bought when we purchased an iPad a few weeks ago. Made from steel the “Compass is a stylish, compact folding stand that works as an easel and a typing stand. As an easel, Compass beautifully displays iPad in both portrait and landscape modes. To transform Compass into a typing stand, simply flip down the secondary leg and this super portable stand sits at a perfect angle for comfortable typing on iPad’s cool onscreen keyboard”.
This certainly beats Apples case or propping the iPad against a stack of books. It also seems more versatile than other purpose built stands I have seen. With metal to metal contact scratches can occur, so while using the Compass it might be best to leave your iPad in some kind of case.
