Hands on with the Slim Folio Stand for the iPad 2
by Mark R
The last time we covered a hands-on review with a product from Belkin, it was the Conserve Valet Energy-Saving USB Charging Station. The company sent me the Slim Folio stand for the iPad 2 in advance, and it is pretty good.
I believe that a Folio case is simply a cover for an iPad that can also be used as a stand. This one doesn’t come with a keyboard, but it certainly can do a lot of angles thanks to the treads that you see in the picture.
The typing mode is pretty good for email and any chatting that you will want to do. The material made for it is very tough and form-fitting. It may not be leather, but does it really need to be? It lives up to its name as it is slim.
If there is one fault about the Slim Folio Stand, it is that it does not do portrait mode very well. Now, the Folio Stand can make your iPad stand up straight, but it seems that most of these iPad stands are made for landscape mode at many angles but only one or zero for portrait.
I don’t have any word on when the Slim Folio Stand for the iPad 2 will be out, nor a price. According to the official site, it will only be available in colors of Black/Midnight.
