The Standle is a very usable and versatile, and very cleanly designed case for the iPad.

It can be stood up for easier reading in both portrait and landscape view. The landscape mode makes use of the carrying handle for support, and it can be used to stand it up proud and tall, or give the tablet a very gentle slope that’s better for typing. And when you no longer need it for support or carrying, the handle disappears into the body of the Standle.

As for the controls and ports, there’s cut-outs so none of them are covered, and you can even dock the entire contraption without removing the iPad.

Cost of this grey beauty? $49.
