The Magnus Magnetic Stand for the iPad 2, first announced last week, is now available for shipping. Created by the masterminds at Ten One Design – makers of the Fling Game Controller and Pogo Sketch Stylus - the gorgeous and unique stand holds the iPad 2 in place using magnets, resulting in a low-profile and aesthetically pleasing design.
The one downside to the stand is that it only works in landscape orientation (due to location of the iPad 2′s magnets), but if you can live with that, the Magnus retails for $49.95. Basic shipping (First Class Mail) in the US starts at $4.99, and International orders will set you back another $29.99 for Fedex priority shipping. More images of the stand in various angles after the break.

According to 9to5mac, a reliable source at Foxconn in China (the same source that tipped them off regarding Apple’s plans to release the iPhone 4S instead of the 5 late last summer) has let it be known that the next iPhone (currently being called iPhone 5), is gearing up for production. It is said there are multiple sample next-gen iPhones that are floating around the factory and they all differ slightly from one another. Interestingly enough, the one thing they all have in common with each other is the 4+ inch display, which if true, means Apple will finally release an iPhone with a screen size comparable to other Android phones. In addition, the current samples so far are symmetrical in thickness (no teardrop shape that’s been rumoured previously) and longer/wider than the current iteration, though none share the form factor of the iPhone 4/4s. It’s important to remember that none of these prototypes are actually the final versions – many things can change from now until its actual release in the summer/fall of this year.

Fighting game fans can rejoice this week as they get another port of a classic one on one combat fest, Soulcalibur. The game sports 4 game play modes and a whopping 19 character roster for all your pixel pounding needs. If you like good old fashioned platform games with stylish art and cool music then you need to check out Jazz: Trump's Journey. Strategy junkies should enjoy Time of Heroes, a turn based strategy game that sounds like the iOS answer to the Fire Emblem series. A universal binary and iCloud save game support mean you could play it wherever you want with whichever device you have close at hand. Time management freaks have a unique offering in Order Up!! To Go, a game that takes the backdrop of a Diner Dash style game and puts you in the kitchen instead of on the serving floor. Best of all the game is free, so you've got nothing to lose if you want to take a peek.
