Handstand2 gets a grip on the iPad 2

Hub International has announced the Handstand2, and updated version of its Handstand case specially fitted for the iPad 2. The Handstand takes a unique approach to the idea of an iPad case: instead of just working as a cover to protect and maybe prop up an iPad, the HandStand (and Handstand2) add a one-size-fits-all strap to the back of the iPad, enabling the device to become “an extension of the users’ hand.” Users can easily keep the iPad with them as they go about their routines, and the HandStand enables users to spin the iPad to easily show what’s on the iPad screen, share content, and more. While the HandStand might not seem very practical if you spend all your iPad time on the coach, folks like nurses, doctors, salespeople, teachers, and other professionals using the iPad for business might find it a lifesaver.

“With the release of the iPad 2, it was more important than ever to developed a case that not only made the Apple tablet more comfortable to carry, but also assist users in the many functions that it had to offer,” said Hub International founder Jaime Smith, in a statement. “The HandStand for iPad encompasses both, making the iPad easier to hold for long periods of time as well as helping users become more efficient when working with their iPad.”

The strap enables users to easily keep on hand behind the iPad for solid support and application use, and the grip also doubles as a bit of a stand that supports the iPad at a bit of an incline when used on a solid surface—so users don’t have to slip it in and out of the case. The new version for the iPad 2 leaves space for the iPad 2’s camera, ports, and other controls.

The HandStand2 is available now for $49.95, and is available in black, white, and pink. The original HandStand for the original iPad is still available, as well.
