Joby GorillaMobile Ori and Yogi

£55 and £35, joby.com

GorillaPod tripod maker Joby has brought its skills to bear on a brace of protective covers, but the Ori and Yogi do more than just stop your iPad 2 from getting scratched. The aluminium Ori unfolds into a tabletop stand that can hold the tablet in either portrait or landscape orientation at the perfect height for viewing videos, FaceTiming or taking stabilised video clips and photos. The Yogi features two removable GorillaPod-style legs that can prop up the iPad 2, or even secure it to a tree branch.

Griffin Survivor

£55, firebox.com

Are you a butterfingered iPad 2 owner? Then this could be the case for you: the Survivor boasts military grade toughness, with a polycarbonate frame wrapped in silicone that both absorbs shocks (drops of up to 1.8m) and protects against dirt and sand.

Cygnett Rotating Armour

£40, amazon.co.uk

As the name suggests, you can rotate your iPad 2 inside this case, allowing you to prop it up in both portrait and landscape orientations. There's a "microsuede" lining to protect the screen, and opening/closing it triggers the iPad 2's automatic sleep/wake function.

Incase Book Jacket Select

£50, goincase.com

Are you a hipster who likes sitting in a non-chain coffee shop and "recording your thoughts" in a Moleskine notebook? Well, now you can make your iPad 2 look like one – this book jacket-esque case isn't cheap, but it looks the part and allows you to prop your tablet at three different angles.

Griffin CinemaSeat

£35, griffintechnology.com

In-car iPad 2 gawping becomes simple with this case, which comes with a strap for attachment to the back of a car seat – that means anyone in the back can watch a video hands-free.
