I went in a Dollar Tree in Apex, NC yesterday, and found a couple of computer accessories that are simple and promising:
Tablet Plastic Stand
Fits tablets up to 12” x 8.5”
I’ve used a Nook Color HD Plus and an iPad2 to test out this stand and the stand works in both portrait and landscape mode, giving the devices a solid stand from which to work.
Hard Case for iPad2 (with position for smart cover.
The plastic on this is not as thick as my recent tripod mount purchase ($14.95), but there are several plastic lips that make the iPad fit as snuggly into the case. One side of the case is also cut out to allow for the attachment of the “smart cover”. That is not the case on the tripod mount. *I found an easy to install
