No. Internal dimensions are smaller and were a perfect fit for the Fire.

According to Timbuk2 it will not fit. You need a case that fits XS like any of the ones that fit the iPad 2/3. I have the one for my iPad 3 there is some space around the edges. And I can also put my cables inside whenever I don't carry my messenger bag.

Shop around. You can find them cheaper than $30.

Thanks. I guess I'll just pick up something cheap and generic from ebay and wait out for timbuk2 to make one.

Okay so apparently they will fit...

Hey Oliver,

Thanks for the email. While we don't specifically have something for the new iPad Mini, our existing sleeves for the new Kindle HD 7" table fit perfectly:

That sucks :(Sorry buddy. That member offers a 30 day return policy so send it back and get yourself a refund.

The only reason I had a hunch was because I'm a regular ebayer and I've been around the block with shady sellers and have learned to spot red flags from miles away.
