I've had my iPad mini for quite some time now and have been using the iPad mini Smart Cover from Apple with it. This cover is great when on the road, but what I found lacking is stability when using the cover to prop the iPad up on a desk.

I've done a bit of looking around and found the WaveStand from Griffin, read some reviews...they weren't so good, but I didn't come across any reviews using it with an iPad mini. So I took the gamble and bought it anyway.

So how does it stack up?


Well the stand is sturdy, and supports the iPad mini quite well, I can actually tap it without feeling like the iPad will topple over.

There is no charging dock in this stand, which is OK. I use my iPad in landscape mode while on this stand anyway.

The only annoying thing about this stand is it's clearly not built for an iPad mini! This is evident by the high 'wave' ridges at the front. The ridges block out some of the screen, so reaching the very low icons is a bit difficult (this means sliding the unlock is a bit annoying with the ridges in the way).

The stand is quite simple, with a rubbery inside and a hard plastic outside.

The bottom section slides out to make the stand more stable.

Overall I think this is a good stand, it's certainly doing a better job than the smart cover.

I'll rate it 4/5, would have been 5/5 if the ridges were lower.
