Last year, when the iPad first came out, Element Case had a hard time keeping its slickly designed but expensive Joule stands in stock. Now that the iPad 2 is out there, the company's updated the Joule to the Joule Chroma and added some new color choices.
The company says the new Joule Chroma, which still costs a hefty $149.99, offers six new anodized colors "with a stunning satin, deep luster finish paired with a plush color matched ultrasuede liner." It comes with a three-position tilt foot that allows you to adjust the angle of your iPad (yes, the stand fits both the iPad 1 and iPad 2).
Why so expensive? Well, the stand is CNC machined from aircraft-grade aluminum and made in America.
Like any finely crafted accessory, Joule Chroma comes with its own protective carrying case, as well it should for $150.
