I thought that this might be something a few of you out there might be interested in. It is a pretty inexpensive iPad Case that doubles as a stand. The case fastens with some high powered magnets so there is no Velcro or snaps to content with. It has cut outs for all your controls and supplies a screen protector. The magnetized flap also doubles over and acts as a kickstand and is very lightweight at 7.8 ounces. All this and more (not much more really) can be yours for only $19.99.
The Pad Protector comes in Red or black and more information can be found on their website here:.
