IK Multimedia has shipped the US$29.99 iKlip Studio (http://www.iklipstudio.com), a desktop studio stand for the iPad. It’s designed and created specifically for musicians but can be used by “anyone needing a sturdy, non-slip, adjustable stand for all iPads, including the just released iPad,” the company says.

The iKlip Studio is constructed of a lightweight, shock-resistant, thermoplastic material that supports the Apple tablet in both horizontal and vertical positions. Rubber foot pads grip the desktop surface and prevent unwanted sliding. Slots in the housing allow access to every port of the device for charging or connecting to external speakers with channels for keeping cables organized.

A detachable bracket is also included to hold IK’s iRig guitar interface adapter in place and keep it from hanging off the iPad. For portability, the iKlip Studio folds flat so it can be easily carried in a iPad or laptop bag.
