Native Union’s Gripster case is now available for the iPad Air, and it looks like the perfect accessory for folks who own an iPad air and also have hands. Yes, hands – those prehensile utilihooks at the ends of your chestal meat-sticks.
The case combines a grip, a stand and a cover, and is possible even better suited to the Air than it is to the mini, for which it is already available.
The case comes in “standard” or in two colors of leather, and sides onto your iPad like any other folio+shell style case. The front flap rolls up and around the back to become a hand grip, which looks perfect for reading in portrait orientation. And then there’s the grip.
This loop sits flush with the back until you pop it out and twist it on its turret to use it as a handle, or as a kickstand. If you take a look at the promo image on the site you’ll see just how versatile this can be.
It looks rather handy, and there should be one on its way to Cult of Mac’s underground volcano base in Germany for testing purposes. We’ll let you know how it goes.
