Moshi's origami iPad case folds into its own stand

At CTIA, CNET tugged the pricey, plush Moshi Versacover case into a pedestal for the iPad.

NEW ORLEANS--Moshi is taking Apple's magnetic iPad case a step further, with origami.

The hard plastic Moshi iGlaze with Versacover case totally surrounds the iPad, combining both a protective screen that helps minimizes glare (but not as much as the separate iVisor product) with a back panel that wears a microfiber flap like a blanket.

Manipulate this flap along its folds to shape it into pyramidal formation that props up the iPad in both landscape and portrait modes. Fold it a different direction to fashion a stand for typing and viewing movies.

The magnetic cover works like Apple's to wake up the iPad or put it to sleep. There's no pricing yet, but the case will cost somewhere in the $60 range, and will arrive in retail stores -- like Apple's -- in mid-to-late June.
