Vantage Point's Beanpad Portfolio for iPad

Beanbags are typically associated with lounging, but they've always been more for people than gadgets.

Vantage Point is trying to shake that up with its Beanpad Portfolio stand for the iPad.

Like the Beanpad stand the company launched last October, the Portfolio has a beanbag that can be used to set the iPad on uneven surfaces. But unlike that model, the Portfolio does away with a mount in place of a full leather case with a Velcro backing. When you're not using the Beanpad stand, you can cart around your iPad in just the leather case.

The Portfolio case runs $79 and comes in a handful of colors, including brown, black, and pink.
