The iPad Mini Smart Covers look sleeker than the Smart Cover's that we are used to. I like them.
I expect a Smart Cover like that for the next major update to the large iPad. I'm thinking that the next iPad will have the same unibody design as the iPad mini and it will use the same style Smart Cover as the Mini. That will be awesome! Unless, of course, they do something totally different that we would never even think of for the next major iPad release.
I actually probably go for just a sleeve type case
Gotta slide easy in and out of my purse
I may pick up the smart cover at the Store at some point. I have one but honest never use it. I hate that with it on, it won't really fit in the dock.
I love the Wardmaster case I have for travel looks great and is water resistant and shock proof
