20130199960PROTECTION COVER WITH UPRIGHT POSITIONABILITY - A protection cover with upright positionability includes a first board and a second board. The first board has a quadrilateral shape for mounting to a back side of an electronic device of a similar shape. The first board forms a fold line and is divided by the fold line into a stationary zone fixedly attached to the electronic device and a folding zone removably attached to the electronic device. The second board is connected to one edge of the folding zone. To position the electronic device in a substantially upright condition, the folding zone of the first board is separated from the electronic device and folded toward the back side of the electronic device to serve as a support to the electronic device positioned in the substantially upright condition. And adjusting folding angle of the folding zone may adjust the inclination angle of the electronic device that is positioned upright.08-08-2013
