OtterBox Dell Streak 7 Defender case features screen cover with fold-out stand

Anyone familiar with OtterBox's Defender Series line knows that a thick plastic holster with ratcheting belt clip is usually included. It doesn't always look exactly like the one bundled with the Dell Streak Defender, but the general design is the same for other phones that are small enough to be clipped on a belt.

The Dell Streak 7 is obviously too big to be carried around like that, but OtterBox still includes what looks like a holster with its Defender case ($69.95) for the tablet. The thick plastic piece is actually designed to snap onto the front of the tablet to protect the screen . . . and thanks to a fold-out contraption built into the inside of the cover, it doubles as a stand.

The durability of the stand is questionable to me, as it feels like it's going to break every time it's folded out and snapped back into place, but it's certainly an interesting and unique addition while it's not broken.

It positions the Streak 7 at an ideal viewing angle for watching movies and reading ebooks. The contraption itself is a little cumbersome, but the idea of making the cover functional while it's not being used to protect the screen is one that I like.

I'll post a full review of the Defender Series case for the Streak 7 after I've used it for a bit longer (I want to see how long the stand will last). I just wanted to show you guys the fold-out stand feature now since there aren't any pictures of it anywhere, and Dell.com incorrectly says that this case "comes with a ratcheting belt clip holster."
