NewerTech Announces NuGuard GripStand Multi-Purpose Protective Case And Desktop Stand For iPad

Newer Technology, Inc. announced today the NewerTech NuGuard GripStand for safer transporting, easier viewing, and more secure handling of the first generation Apple iPad during mobile or desktop use. Available in black or white, the $29.99 MSRP accessory offers iPad owners one of the most flexible and affordable combination protection/viewing solutions available.

Two Options To Choose From To Get A Grip On iPad Display Needs

The NuGuard GripStand is available as a standalone product or as part of a value priced bundle that includes the GripBase desktop accessory that locks into the GripStand case to provide a fully adjustable viewing angle in landscape or portrait modes along with 360° rotation. The wide, weighted footprint ensures the GripBase will remain stationary on a desk even in high traffic areas.

Like A Multi-Purpose Tool For The iPad

The NuGuard GripStand is like a multipurpose tool for the iPad. The hard plastic protective shell grips the iPad snugly while enveloping it in a shock-absorbing inner rubber liner. The removable, skid resistant desktop stand can be swiveled 360° and positioned at virtually any angle for viewing or typing needs. The desktop stand also doubles as a highly effective, ergonomically designed one hand grip so the iPad can be securely used while standing or walking. To take presentations to the next level, the NuGuard GripStand handle can even be rotated to use as a hook to hang the iPad on the wall in either landscape or portrait orientation.

Mobile Users Can Carry With Confidence

iPad users can use the NuGuard GripStand to go mobile with confidence that their investment will be protected. During transport, the iPad can be flipped around so the glass is facing into the protective case for extra protection. Then, use the desktop stand as a handle to carry the iPad like a briefcase. When travel bag space is a consideration, just twist the desktop stand/hand grip to remove it.

Perfect For The Classroom

With the protective qualities of the case and the sturdiness of the dual purpose stand and hand grip, the NuGuard GripStand is perfect for the growing use of the iPad in K-12 educational environments where the iPad will be subjected to unpredictable handling and movement.

“We took our time in developing a stand for the iPad that would offer more functionality than other options costing up to three times as much,” said Grant Dahlke, Brand Manager, Newer Technology, Inc. “The enthusiastically positive consumer research feedback we received on the GripStand has us very excited to now offer the product for immediate purchase.”

    • Much of the design on this case relies on the surface area of the edges of the original iPad for securing and protecting the iPad. We do not have any timetable as to if/when this case style can be altered to accommodate the iPad 2.
