We thought we’d do a round-up of the iPad stands after a recent visit to the Apple Store and a few other places that caught our attention for use in the kitchen. If you’re using your iPad for recipes you’ll need a stand. Having it on the counter is just not an option with flour, spills, and having it slide around. The first stand we look at is this stable aluminum a-frame design from Griffin.
The Griffin A-Frame Tabletop Stand for iPad features a non-slip rubber cradle accommodating Griffin’s flexible and hard-shell cases and many others. It allows for easy access to iPad’s dock connector for charging and syncing.
The next iPad stand is the Thought Out Stabile Steel iPad Stand. It features solid American steel, nearly 4 lbs of it. (Over 4 lbs. to ship). The anti-tip low and user focused center of gravity makes for easy viewing, and you can fit a keyboard underneath. Also this one has non-slip feet perfect for staying put on granite or other slippery counters.
Our last pick is more of a fits all pick, because you an use with an iPad or other tablet pcs or tablets like the upcoming droid based ones. Made of solid aluminum construction, the elago P2 Stand (Silver) for iPad and Tablet PC is compatible with the iPad and most tablet PCs. This one has one draw back – you may have to remove your iPad case to use.
