It’s not easy to choose a case for an iPad. You’ve just spent $500 plus on an Apple device, and you don’t want to take any chances when it comes to protecting it, but you also need something that fits in with your lifestyle.

Belkin Cinema Stripe Folio for iPad (3rd gen): First Looks and Gallery

Folio stands have always been something of a mystery to me. They try to do two things, and do neither of them well. The sturdiness required to make them suitable stands often means there’s a compromise in thinness and weight. Then again, they’re often not very sturdy due since the stand isn’t fixed, and often relies on shallow grooves to hold your iPad at…
