    The iTab Grip is a clear protective case made of polymer which encloses the back and the sides of the iPad. What sets this iPad case apart from other iPad grip cases is that it's integrated with a rotating device at the back which allows the user to securely achieve full mobility while using the tablet. So basically, this iPad case works in two ways. It works as a cover to protect your tablet from scratches and dirt and it also works as an extension of your hand. It has a ring-like attachment at the back where you can slip your finger to hold the tablet. Once it's attached to your finger, it provides you with a secure hold which means you can move it around, swing it around, and even spin it around without the fear of dropping it. Well, I've tried it and my iPad is still in one piece. The iTab Grip is also made from polymer, not velcro, so it's more hygienic to use and you won't get itchy while using it. It also won't leave you those nasty velcro marks at the back of your hand.

    What I also love about this iPad accessory is that you can use it alongside Apple's Smart Covers. That actually sealed the deal for me. I get to have a stylish front cover and I also get a cool back cover and ring grip. The iTab Grip grip case also offers a clear protective cover for the front screen. If you don't want to use Apple's Smart Cover, your screen is still protected from scratches because of the screen protector.

    Price-wise, I think it's also a good buy. Some grip cases costs up to more than $300 so I think the iTab Grip case, given its nifty features, is affordably priced at $49.50 for the iPad 1 and $54.50 for the iPad 2.

    I highly recommend iTab Grip iPad grip case to other iPad users. While it may not seem very practical for some, professionals who use the iPad for business and people who are always on the go who love to multitask could greatly benefit from it.

    I can understand the utility when the iPad is handheld. But there's no mention of removing the circular "holder" on the back of the when placing the iPad on a desk or in a stand (e.g. Origami Workstation). Is the holder removable or must the iPad be removed from the case entirely?

    I'm assuming of course that the "Review" above comes from a human being who uses the product and is not simply a marketing blurb masquerading as a "review."

    P.S. Did a quick search and found that the product requires additional "accessories" for the functionality noted above, e.g. a stand, attachment to a wall, etc. Unfortunately, none of the "accessories" is currently available.

    Hey there, I think the company's marketing dept (or someone, anyway) blitzed a single review into a bunch of sites; that's all the info I can find--it's the exact same text everywhere. Idiotic practice--now i question the compnay and the product, not just the reviews. I'm not concerned myself with the accesories, I just want to know if that ring can be easily removed without, as yuo say, removing the whole case (ie., removing the ring so I could quickly and easily store the ipad2, while still in the case, in a messenger bag or briefcase).

    Do yuo, or does anyone else, have an answer to that? Thanks.

    There's no doubt about that.

    Anyway, a Padlette will be a better solution imo..

    I like the look of those Padlettes, but I'd like to get something that works as a protective case, too. This iTab Grip might have been it ... except for the inability to get any real tangible info on the thing.

    As well, the Sleeve360 and the SlateShield are in the running. I need something suitable for protection, and then something that works one-handed (and offers a range of motion), but that can slide into a briefcase without hassle.

    I hadn't realized it was going to be so difficult to find offerings in those areas!

    Any recommendations that anyone has ... i'd be most appreciative!

    Well you can always stretch it over a case. Of course that will add up in costs..

    I bought the iTab_Grip and like it.

    Not quite sure what you are talking about here, the ring grips slide in and out and you get a desktop stand included, which also slips in and out very easily.. you don't need any other attachments and any way they say they are not available yet... maybe you guys should read the webiste... it is pretty simple but hey it is not rocket science guys and the product is good value at $50 bucks....
