HandStand2 for iPad 2 Review

Behold a holder for your iPad 2 that'll leave you with one arm flailing with joy. This is the HandStand2, a case that contains your iPad 2 for safety at the same time as making it easy to carry and work with one-handed. The HandStand 2 features a swivel grip with which you'll be able to essentially turn your arm into an iPad 2, turning the tablet in circles at will!
