A new tablet stand from Belkin

Hi, I'm looking for an iPad stand: it has to be light-weight, stable and with al least 2 positions (typing and video watching).

I've just found a new tablet stand from Belkin: the Belkin Tablet Stand.
It is a very simple product intended for the educational market but I think that it could have a more broad appeal especially if more colours are added. It has two positions 15 degrees (typing) and 120 degrees (video watching). It is made of plastic and its colours are a bit childish (but the grey one is pleasant). Price is around $ 20,00.

Here is some press stuff from Belkin US:

What do you think about it? Any drawbacks? Do you know similar products I should consider?

I don't necessarily see any drawbacks, but I already have their Flip Blade Adjust or whatever it was called. This one arguably nicer looking, but probably not as portable as the other stand folds flat, but they both have the multi-angle feature.

Hi, the Belkin FlipBlade is very nice and portable but it has just one position (video watching).

The Belkin FlipBlade Adjust, on the contrary, has multiple positions, but it is bigger.

The problem with the Belkin FlipBlade Adjust is that, according to some reviewers, it wobbles a bit, especially when typing. Can you confirm this problem?

I have the FlipBlade Adjust. It was on sale at Best Buy for around $12 awhile back. I don't use the stand for typing very much, but have never had a problem when I did. The new stand looks very nice, but not enough where I would replace the one I got. Plus I like that I can fold the stand completely flat when not in use.

It seems that the Belkin stand I'm looking for is currently only for the US market I can't find any European retailer that sells it!

Just out of curiosity: Belkin says that the stand I'm talking about is available in "White/Gray", but I see it rather as "Lighter Gray/Gray"... What colors do you see it on your display?

I just got the Cooler Master...Nice solid stand...E-Buyer had it for 12.99, not sure if they still do, but it's worth twice that....It's the first stand I've owned where I'm confident enough to go naked with my iPad.

When I first looked at the pic I thought it was aluminum with the grey rubber padding.

Nice stand! And what a price! However at this point I'm inclined to buy the Belkin FlipBlade Adjust (the stand of jedolley). It has a great review (A) on iLounge... Strangely enough I can't find any good video review on YouTube

Thumbs up PadStand

I got the Pad Stand at, of all places, Macy's. After the One Day Sale price and my Macy's coupon I got 2 of them at 4.99 each. I keep one upstairs and the other downstairs. I like the way the rubber base grips the surface the stand sits on.
