I bought a navy blue CaseCrown leather portfolio. Think it's a different look and will go well with the white/silver mini. Cost $10, so minimal investment and I just want to get this into some sort of case.
I hate those shameless shills for a company you obviously work for. Just come out and say you're starting a company that makes iPad cases. There is NO WAY I'll ever go to your site after that poor attempt at shilling us.
ITS ME DAVID
I have the case you put an Amazon link for. It's a pretty good cover, especially for the money. It is a smart cover (magnets in place and functioning) but the controls are a little hard to get to.
Moshi VersaCover for the iPad Mini, http://store.moshimonde.com/ipad/versacover-for-ipad-mini.html. Price $50.00 plus tax and shipping is free unless you upgrade. I have been waiting for the Moshi VersaCover for the Mini and received it today. I have the VersaCover for the iPad 3, thanks to Napolean and have really enjoyed it. It adds very little to the 3's or Mini's foot print. It is attached to the case and IMO has flexibility that my Apple Smart cover didn't have. It appears durable and once you have mastered the contortions necessary to get to the position it works well. I attribute some of the time required to being over the age of 67 and having left almost all my patience behind in my 50s. Those of you that are younger will probably wonder what in the heck I am talking about. The VersCover provides minimum if any drop protection but more than adequate protection from bumps and scratches. FYI, the screen protector is a Zagg HD. I have Zagg screen protectors on all my devices and am sold on them and the warranty.
I love the Apple smart cover for the mini. It stay on well. I have no problem with it. If you're paranoid about scratches, I suppose you could use a skin on the back. I just don't see the point of having such a light device and covering it with a half pound of vinyl or leather.
If I'm going to travel with it, I use a zip up envelope pouch.
