From all the pictures I’ve seen it appears to be a portrait only stand. Is there a way to use the device to hold the iPad in a landscape orientation?

@2 - I looked at the gallery on the Rain website. Although it never actually shows an iPad in landscape, it does show the stand empty. It is only holding the iPad with what appears to be a rubberized bottom with a lip and an aluminum looking plate up the back. I see nothing there that would not allow landscape. If anything, the plate me be visible near the top of the device in landscape. But I even doubt that based on what I saw.
