Previously Sneak Peeked in our 2011 Buyers' Guide, DigiPower's Coffee Clutch ($30) points the way forward in female-friendly iPad stand design. Unlike the male-focused designs of combination stand and handle cases such as Griffin's Standle, Coffee Clutch adds a purse-like handle and arm strap to a flip-out rear stand, which is angled for video, photo, and web use. The frame combines medium-gauge rubber on three of its sides with hard plastic on the fourth side and back, enabling easy insertion of the iPad while providing a sturdy hard shell to hold the tablet; holes in each side provide button, speaker, microphone, and port access. All that's missing, and not particularly missed by us, is a stand position for elevated keyboard use. We really like what DigiPower is doing these days with iPad and iPhone/iPod accessories, and Coffee Clutch demonstrates how the company's smart compromises lead to elegant designs and reasonable prices.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
