For those of you who don't want to purchase the Apple Keyboard Dock or the "regular dock," Griffin has developed the A-Frame Tabletop Stand (US$49.99, see photo above). This is a folding aluminum stand with a soft silicone cradle in the bottom. The iPad sits contentedly in the cradle in either portrait or landscape orientation, and Griffin says that the dock connector is accessible regardless of how the iPad is oriented. When you're done, the A-Frame Tabletop Stand folds flat for easy travel. It's also possible to use the stand in the folded position to help support the iPad when it's on a table or other flat surface.
