If you've spent ample amount of time with your iPad, you'll find the viewing angle of the device a bit awkward either if you leave it on a flat surface (hunching over with a cramped neck) or holding the device up with your hands (gives your forearm a cramp). This is where Griffin's new A-Frame desktop stand for iPad may come in handy.
The A-Frame is a sturdy desktop frame made up of Aluminum with some heft in its weight. The construction is very well built and feels very precise; the look matches your iPad's finish perfectly. There are rubber padding in all the right areas (foot, backside) to keep your iPad propped up with high stability. The designers cleverly left all the important cutouts so you can keep your iPad connected to an external power source. The A-Frame is not a charging cradle although thinking about it, it could have been a nice feature to have. For what it is, it does a great job holding your iPad (naked or in the Griffin FlexGrip iPad Case).
I am very pleased with the A-Frame especially while watching a movie on my iPad. At $49.99 MSRP, the stand can be pricey but its a small price to pay to elevate your mobile experience with the iPad knowing its propped up with stability.
