I picked up the Targus Truss case for my iPad today. My local BestBuy had them in stock, though they seem to be back ordered most places online. I like it a lot, though not without reservations.

Pros:
Multiple landscape viewing angles
Easy to use/highly functional
Real leather, attractive contrast stitching, feels high quality
Very padded, soft interior lining, highly protective
Handy elastic cord with Leather strip for holding case closed

Cons:
Thick and Heavy (really thick)

In summary this case works great for me, as I carry my iPad in a bag, and primarily use it on tables where the stand functionality is important. If I were holding it in my hands for long periods of time I think it would be too heavy and unwieldy.

Targus has three pics online: http://www.targus.com/us/product_details.aspx?sku=THZ02203US

That's the brown orange. I picked up the Black/Blue at Best Buy. There are pics of it at iLounge: http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/reviews/entry/targus-truss-case-for-ipad/

AppAddict has a video review of it as well. Shows the thickness nicely: http://appaddict.net/2010/08/03/video-review-targus-truss-case-for-ipad/

Is there any way it can be used in Portrait mode?

Not really. It will stand up quite sturdily in portrait mode, but it is straight up and down, no tilt at all. Not really a good angle for anything.

Check out my cheezy review here: I like it, and find it more comfortable to hold with the case on.
