It protects it so you can put your Ipad into a bag without worry.
Silver Always
The fact that the iPad can be rotated 360 degrees in any mode is a definite plus, enabling ease of transitioning from portrait to landscape formats.
Edward L. Kramer DO
It didn't significantly add to the weight of my iPad, I really didn't notice the difference.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I think this is an amazing and thoughtful piece of industrial design and I'm giving it five stars. However, it is not for everybody and, after using it for three weeks, I have some observations that might factor into a buying decision.

-Weight. The Ori adds a pound (15.9 ounces on my scale) to the 1.5 pounds of the iPad 1. This is a consideration especially if you often hold your iPad in one hand while reading (as I do) or in any situation where you would typically hold the iPad in one hand and gesture with the other hand.

-Size. The Ori does not add much to the iPad in the way of height and width, but it does make it quite a bit thicker. Again, this can become an issue if you tend to hold the iPad in one hand. The iPad with Ori actually slips in and out of a Case Logic carrier I use easier than it did when I had the iPad in a Griffin FlexGrip skin.

-Design. As with other Joby products, form follows function. This is not the minimalist aesthetic of Apple products. Joby products are designed to perform specific tasks in the physical world; they are mechanical. Joby produces clever, innovative, and attractive solutions. Unlike Apple, however, they're never going to get it down to one or zero moving parts. Even so, I find that people who give it a "what's that...thing?" look when they first see it are surprised and impressed when I unfold it and show them what's inside and what it will do.

-Personal. One of the reasons I started using a Sony Reader (this was pre-Kindle) and then an iPad was because I started developing cramps in my hands holding books open (at first just hard cover and then paperbacks as well). The first time I held the iPad with Ori with one hand to read, I developed a hand cramp after about a half-hour.

The good.: Will work as a light duty travel case if you are just carrying it around or want to shove it in a backpack or suitcase. Great for photo slideshow display or tabletop display.
The bad: Clever design but fails miserably on the basics. The on off control switch and the volume control are completely useless. If you want to use those switches you must remove the device to access them. Same with the headphone jack. It is off by 1/4" and on my unit needed to be dremmeled and the plug cut so I could get it to work with my output cord. Big heads up to anyone who gets one. The material that protects the screen is also the same surface that is on whatever you put the case down on. It picks up any dirt, debris and junk since its quite soft by design and embeds it into the surface that is suppose to protect the screen when closed. Make sure you keep that clean or it's going to ruin the very thing you bought it to protect. SC

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Practical and clever accessory, a must-have for iPad owners.

Pros:
3 different positions eases the use of iPad in multiple ways, like reading books, flipboard, news, or watching videos and movies, or tabletop surfing. Overall it makes iPad use lot more comfortable while relaxing on couch, reading bedside, or at office desk.

All the connections and outlets are easiy accessible .

iPad can be charged while being used.

Very sturdy and solid, provides good support for typing.

Cons:

It is a bit heavy for tose who need to carry it all the time and weight does matter.
Being a metallic product it does offer strudiness and good support but at the cost of added weight.

In the tabletop position, if increase the angle a little bit, the supporting latch can't be used and it may not be very stable during typing.

A bit pricey for what it does. You may find sleeker & sturdy cases, cheaper than this (currently at seventy-seven).

Now for iPad2, there are already smart covers. But in case if you want to save money and want to use this Joby (since you already own it from ipad days), it may work out ok (depending on your expectations). Since the new ipad is 33% thinner, it sits very low in Joby Gorillamobile and hence the outlets (including sync, power, audio, and volume) are not usable. The mute button is not accessible at all.Even the power button sits below.

Other than that issue, you will be able to almost anything else, like reading, typing, surfing, etc.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Overall I am very impressed with this Joby product. I own several Joby tripods and find them to be well-designed and high quality, and Joby's origami-inspired iPad case/stand is no exception. Were I in the market for this product, there are a couple of things I'd want to know in advance that relate to my particular way of using my iPad.

One, I would want to know that the power/sync port will NOT accept a Griffin Technology 3 meter (approx. 9 ft.) USB to dock/iPad cable (listed on Amazon under the name "3M USB To Dock for Ipad/iphone"). The end that can be plugged directly into the iPad is too fat for Joby's case. Joby's case does of course accommodate the relatively short cable that comes with the iPad, and it also accommodates the just about equally short cable that comes in Griffin's Wall Charger + Car Charger for iPad, iPhone, and iPad kit (Griffin's wall charger AKA the Power Block and their car charger are sold separately and each comes with the same cable that comes with the aforementioned kit, so any of those will fit fine in Joby's iPad case). There are times when I want to use my iPad when it's plugged in to AC, and when for practical reasons I need a long USB-iPad cable (the USB end is the end that of course plugs into the power block that comes with the iPad, or into the aforementioned Griffin Power Block and car charger).

Two, on a daily basis I use my iPad at least once hooked up to stereo speakers or a stereo system. This requires using the type of audio cables that are commonly found on stereo speaker sets designed for use with laptop and desktop computers, i.e., cables with a 3.5mm "male" end (the plugs on the end of most earbuds and the like are 3.5mm).
