Give-away: Joule stand for iPad by Element Case


We've already pointed you towards Element Case's Joule stand for iPad but now we've had some hands-on time with both the polished aluminum (with custom TiPb logo!) and anodized black versions and we can tell you ourselves -- they're stunners.

If you're looking for a high-end way to show off your new iPad, portrait or landscape, high for watching or low for typing, the Joule just might be it.

You can see the fancy retail packaging in the video below (online orders come in more practical mailers), but no matter how it arrives it includes the velvet lined base with cut-out for the iPad speakers and three position mounts for the support leg -- and a microfiber cleaning cloth (since Apple forgot to include it with the iPad).

Starting at $129 and with customizable options, it's not the cheapest solution but if you want something with high-quality material and workmanship to really show off your iPad, you get what you pay for.

Or, hey, if you want one for free Element Case has graciously offered to give a few away to our awesome TiPb readers. We're debuting our new iPad Live! podcast this Sunday night at 5pm PT/8pm ET and during the show we'll be giving away the Joule stands. So tune in Sunday, or head over to and order anytime!

Pics and video after the break!

Give-away: Joule stand for iPad by Element Case


This would be stunning and would even fit in with my spouse's mid century modern decor. Even if it didn't, I want this one.

this thing is stupid, and dont think its worth much on ebay if you win it, there is a business card holder that works great as a stand from Office Depot for $0.69

It's a great looking accessory, but the price is really unbelievable. This seems to be a trend with iPad accessories, set by none other than Apple themselves with their crappy $40 case. Suddenly, if it's for the iPad, it's automatically worth an extra $20 premium on top of what it should have cost in the first place.
This stand is probably the worst offender I've seen. It's nice, but it's nowhere near worth what they're asking.

Does seem a little high. It looks cool and all, but you could get a real nice wooden L style picture frame stand for $10.00 that would do the job.

You pay more for style and quality. SURE you can get something cheaper, but most people use style as part of their buying decision. If they didn't, we would all buy the ugly cheap cars because they drive just as well right? And in most cases will even give you better gas mileage. BUT ... most people will opt for something a lot more expensive even if it costs a lot more and is worse on gas mileage. Why? Because it looks better. It's made better. How is this any different? And for those of you who say you can get a cheap piece of wood to do the same thing ... think about why you got the car you are driving. Was it because it was cheap and economical to get you from point a to point b? Or did you pay a little more because it looked nice.
"But that's a car ... this is a stand!" ... really? That is just relative isn't it?

Wow, you are so smart. I want to show it at once. This hardware as good as software like ifunia video converter and ipad games, apps, wallpapers provided by third companies, ifunia or others.

The black stand looks so much "classier" then the metallic and I love the packaging the stand itself comes in.
