ForeFront Cases® New iPad 4 and iPad 3 Luxury Leat&hellip by ForeFront Cases®
This seeems a very neat solution to the "It's going to slip out of my hand" problem!
As a ipad virgin, it seems to fit the bill and provides good standing for the tablet in either the prone or upright position.
Have enjoyed it very much so far!
PS The bonus screen protector and stylus were very welcome!

My 3 star rating is reading it as an adult - but I'm not the target audience
